First attempt at using telescope for lunar photography

Without sports to shoot, I have been delving into other areas of photography.  The weather was finally nice during the evening and I used my 1DX III with a T adapter and my Celestron CPC 1100 Edge HD telescope (11" SCT type).  It looks like something...

Astonishing: 40D Af tops 77D AF

Canon EF 400 F2.8 with Canon 2X

I am generally not a fan of using teleconverters with a lens and especially not the 2X but the EF 400 F2.8 design is so good that it does pretty well with the 2X.  Not something I plan to use often but I am glad it is a possibility if the need arises...
