Hi,

This was a good way to try my new D800. I installed it at the prime focus of my Televue 85 APO telescope (600mm f/7 top quality) and took photos as is, then with my Nikon 14TC-II and 20TC-III. Here are two examples (MUP, total focal lenght = 840mm f/11 and 1200mm f/14). On Gitzo GT35541LS and Markins Q20 ballhead.

I was lucky since it was cloudy all the time except for 30 minutes.
