Is there a simple way to reply to comments? If there is I can't find it so I'm not being rude I just can't 'talk' directly to you! I'm sure I've seen replies on other blogs maybe this is the wrong platform ?
Claire - no telescope but I do have a Canon 450D and that was taken with a simple 70-300mm zoom lens and then I zoomed in and cropped on photoshop (no other photoshop adjustments :) ) plus I had borrowed a tripod from a friend which means the camera shake from pressing the button which will easily blur something as far away as the moon was eliminated.
You can use a telescope and a point and shoot camera to get some great night sky shots, I'm now waiting for the moon wane a bit with a clear sky so i can get some star shots :)
