Image taken 10 Sep 2002, 19:00
Location Old Winchester Hill, SU645213,  5059'16"N 104'55"W
15C, slightly hazy
Equipment used Helios 8" newtonian reflector, 20mm eyepiece
Pentax P30T, 50mm standard lens
Comments This was our first experiment at taking a photograph through the telescope. We were surprised to find that the camera was able to focus through the 20mm eyepiece although our efforts to stabilise the camera on a tripod failed - this was a handheld photograph with a 1/2 second exposure.
