I dodged the clouds early this morning to get this image of the waning gibbous Moon taken on 2016-08-23 at 10:22 UT from Austin, Texas. Questar 3.5" telescope with Sony a6300 camera at prime focus. Exposed at ISO 200 for 1/40 sec. The best 18 of 87 images stacked and deconvolved in Lynkeos with final crop and exposure in Photoshop.
I was also able to test my new simultaneous perfect focus configuration for eyepiece and camera. I can now just flip a lever to go from an in focus eyepiece view, to in focus imaging with my camera. I'm using a 1" slip fit eyepiece extender to accomplish this. See my note on camera focusing with the Questar for details.
