RTU Moon Observation

Last night, after finishing my class, I joined in with the RTU students who were having their observation of the moon. They had setup 3 telescopes (10" dobsonian, 8" dobsonian and 8" newtonian). I took a shot of the moon using the afocal method, wherein you align the camera lens to the telescope eyepiece.
