Destination: Close-up City !
Is this the limit of this 70mm achromatic telescope (with a rusty diagonal mirror and damaged objective lens coatings) ? I don't know!
What I do know is that I can hold my breath longer now than when I first started imaging--- because handheld and afocal = hold your breath while taking pictures in burst mode

Latest targeted attempt for some 'Lunar 100' features. Messier craters!
This is one of the better results I have had with the DSLR and the Celestron 10mm eyepiece. Can a hashtag go with it? ‪#‎Lunar100‬
Afocal handheld, Meade 70mm refractor (f/10),
Nikon D5100

"Sirius Orbits" - This is the brightest star in the night sky, Sirius, as seen from Earth's atmosphere. The atmosphere distorts the distant star light into a spectrum of colours which can be captured by spinning the star around in an eyepiece! Pretty cool!
I took this 2 second exposure by putting the DSLR (Nikon D5100) in front of the eyepiece and shaking the eyepiece in a roughly oval track as soon as I pressed the shutter button. 
Telescope is a Meade 70mm refractor (f/10). Feel free to use this image!!
