Very cool!

I got back into photography a few years ago and have been playing around recently to get some really sharp shots of the moon with my mirrorless digital cameras and some legacy lenses . The best one I have is an old Tokina AT-X 150-500 mm zoom that's long, ungainly, heavy,; and almost impossible to use handheld on moving objects it sets on the heaviest tripod I can bring myself to carry at any given time and works pretty well. Amazon tells me I've got an Orion StarBlast 62 due on Thursday and perhaps that will be easier on the back and a little sharper .

I believe in tripods:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/101461001@N06/albums/72157676559403225

Here are some results:
