A while back I modified a Sharp 640x480 Digital camera so that I could swap the fixed lens with a 1 1/4" adapter (I make).

Here is a photo that was taken last Sat.nigh at 10:00pm with the moon fairly low on the horizon. It was taken using a C-5
telephoto on a standard tripod. The advantage over the afocal technique are obvious despite some blurring due to 100:1 Jpeg
compression, thick atmosphere and lack of tracking.

Have Fun,
