On January 10, 2009 exceptionally the sky was clear in the Woodquarter region for some hours. So I could exposure some images of the Earthmoon. The optic used was my Doublett APO Megrez72 from William Optics. On this evening a colleague from Zwettl using a Skywatcher ED 80/600 refractor was also in Nonndorf. So images of the Earthmoon were made through this optic too.
After some tests with different eye pieces the images below were made with my original DSLR Canon EOS 20D. Both refractors were mounted on a fixed tripod without tracking. The moon was lit with 99.85% and was standing 45 degrees over the southeast horizon. About 8 hours later was full moon.
