this is my 350th phota as well as my 47th one.
I'm posting it again to share with you all, particulary those of you who hadn't seen it.
there are a few detail about it that I didn't explain before.
first at all, if you look at it real close you will notice that it is upside down.!!!!!!
I could very easily have fixed that detail, but of course it would be another photo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the reason it is upside down is that is was taken with a telescope without an image inverter.
an inverter is a devise to turn images 180°, but of course it implies an aditional reflectios at a price: an slight decreese in quality.
I have seen some good shot taken by some of my appreciated fotothing friends, the good ones taken at 8 megapixwel and then chopped down.
this one was taken with a Meade ETX125 telescope, and this is the reason of its sharpeness: a 1900mm focal lenght.
I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I do. itis my second favorite photo, the first is my 300th and 1st. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
happy carnival !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having read your caption I wonder how you attached your camera to a telescope,however,this photo of yours would be a prize winning if placed to a contest like your 300th.

FANTASTICA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cuentame un poquito como la hiciste, no control el engles ( ya sč...).
La mia esta hecha en muy malas condiciones, la peor gran contaminacion luminica, pero era la que yo habia visto momentos antes.
Me encantan tus comentarios Nico, no me olvides.

What a powerful image, taken with a telescope. Here's one I took with my Pentax K-7 at full 300mm (450mm equiv 35mm), handheld.
