      The ST-237 will be good for the job; it has exposures down to a millisecond,
      I believe. You should have to down about that low to avoid over-exposure. If
      you need more attenuation, a moon filter, or a rotating polarizing filter,
      will do the job effectively. If you are close, then your built-in blue
      filter should give you a little extra bit of attenuation.

      Focus is challenging. If there is any turbulence, it will drive you crazy as
      you try to focus. <g> Try to find the rough range of best focus, and then go
      for the middle of that. It would be interesting to try CCDSoft's @Focus on
      the moon.

      If you have it, don't forget to set the lunar tracking rate on your mount.

      Good afternoon:

      Since the moon will be directly overhead after sunset tonight, I
      thought it would be interesting to try to capture some images of our
      nearest neighbor in the solar system.

      Are there any recommendations for successful lunar images?

      Clear skies,
      Kevin Dixon
