Taken with a Celestron C5 Telescope (White Tube, 1992-1996?) with a Hirsch T-Adaptor & Vivitar T-Ring on a Canon 7d. The Celestron was mounted to a tripod, and the photo was taken at the same location as the other photos in the earlier Lens Comparison set.
This photo is Straight Out Of the Camera- no processing was applied. (No crop or sharpening, to demonstrate the Telescope’s true image quality) I also used a wireless trigger – but there were some considerable winds shaking the telescope as I took this.
*2000mm on a 7d (1.6x)
Lens Test conducted from Boise Depot parking area to Idaho State Capitol. The Eagle on the Capitol Building is 5’7" and 1.30 miles away.
