Thanks! Its hard to get manual focus because I used screen at 10x to zoom in on moon (you can actually see moon moving in frame) and as soon as I touched the focus ring everything starts shaking lol.

Oh, thank God that was your camera. Was afraid it was the scope for that new build. Hey, steak and lobster is expensive, you never know...

The moon was moving quite quickly so it was hard to get a picture through the telescope. Plus the trees were getting in the way as you can see in the picture.

I think those photos have a cool look to them. Its kinda like the Apollo days lol or deep space photos. Are those full size or did you crop them? I had to crop mine A LOT! Not sure if there is a way but if you can focus I suggest doing it manually and take lots of pictures and keep refocusing and you should get atleast 1 or 2 in good focus.
Also I notice that the big crater on my lower right of the moon is on the lower left of yours.

I used my cell phone and took the pictures from the eyepiece on the telescope haha I couldn't find the adapter for my dslr. The bottom picture was too bright, so I had to adjust the brightness for the others. Otherwise I didn't change any focus or crop anything. That's how they uploaded to facebook from my phone haha.

First and last picture were with a 25mm lens on the telescope.
Middle was a 9mm lens.
