10-inch Skywatcher and the Moon

On Tuesday the 30th of March I observed together with a fellow observer who just lives down the road. He owns several telescopes but tonight we tested the Skywatcher 10-inch newton on an equatorial mount. We compared views of the moon, planets and some deepsky objects, using different eyepieces. We also took some pics of the moon and saturn. I will post a bigger lunar image next week in the solar system section. Here is a first unprocessed image we took with the Nikon Coolpix 4500, a Vixen Lanthanum 25mm eyepiece and the 10-inch Skywatcher telescope.
