Trying My Hand At Astrophotography

2 months 1 week ago #722873 by catm0387
Hi,

I was considering renting a lens or two for night astrophotography, so I thought I'd get my feet wet with they equiptment I already have. In the first photo of the moon, why is there a mirror image? I have also included some additional photos. Any feedback/tips would be awesome. Also I'd appreciate any lens recommendations. I have a Canon XTi and a Nikon D200. Thanks in advance!
