Even with a bright moon you can obtain good results by using a small field of view. The FOV used on M1 in this case was 42.75 x 32.07. The images of M1 were taken with moon that was 65% illuminated. M1 and the moon were separated by about 70 degrees. The image of the moon was taken with an Explore Scientific ED127 with a SBIG ST2000XM CCD. The exposure was .005 seconds and a red filter was used. The images of M1 were a 5-minute luminance and a 10-minute H-alpha. The image of Mt. Rainier is a 15-second exposure (ISO-1600) was taken with a Nikon D3000 using a 200 mm telephoto lens.
