i dont think you can get anything close to that without a telescope. on page 3, he was giving details of the shot and the equipment. in all, his focal length was about 5,000mm and f/20. I dont think my 70-300mm aint gonna cut close to that.

i was reading somewhere that mentioned him and someone mentioned his equipment to take this astro shots was a lot. Let just say i was counting a lot of zeros for the telescope.

I bet that's one of the guys that takes photos of the underside of the space shuttle on launch to check for thermal tile impacts, LOL. He's got the gear obviously and is in Florida, but would just need to be able to track it.

From the picture's photographer...

This image is a mosaic of 15 separate and slightly overlapping 8.2 megapixel images from my Canon EOS-20D (unmodified), taken in Raw mode and converted and stitched together in Photoshop CS2. As you can see from the EXIF data, the exposures were each 1/5 second at ISO 100.

Though the moon is generally made of gray, dusty material it is very bright, photographically, since it is bathed in sunlight.

I mounted my 20D to my Meade LX200 GPS UHTC 10" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope via my 2x Televue Powermate (a focal length doubler, similar to a teleconverter, which also serves to mate my camera to the 2" telescope eyepiece tube). Effective focal length was 5000mm f/20.

Looking through the viewfinder I swept across the surface in a zig-zag fashion, trying for about 1/3 overlap between frames. I triggered the shutter with my TC80-N3 remote timer/controller. I did the stitching by hand in Photoshop.

Since it is tremendously downsized from the original mosaic, which was almost 40 megapixels, and was taken at the camera's most noise-free setting (ISO 100), the data is very accurate, and thus I was able to strongly increase the saturation via Photoshop's Image - Adjust - Hue/Saturation function.
