The moon through my 30 years old Kowa TS-1 spotting scope, captured by the C5050. The yellow glow comes from the setting moon close to the horizon. I used an achromatic triplet as eye piece instead of the original one. Under exposed two steps from the spot metered values on the moon. Only cropping, contrast, and slight sharpening made in Paint Shop Pro.
