      Nice what was your setup for taking this image?

      This was my first attempt at eyepiece projection. The telescope was an William Optics 90mm APO with a Meade 20mm Plossl which gives ~30x. The camera was a Pentax *ist DS2 with a smc PENTAX-DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL operating at f/4.5, 1/500 sec, ISO 200. The camera was mounted using an Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount. So, I guess it was really pseudo eyepiece projection. It took a lot of patients and trial & error to get the eyepiece and camera lined up correctly but it paid off.
