    Experienced moon-shooters (or anyone who knows the answers):
    - What focal length do i need?
    - Are telescopes (with camera mount) available for rent? Where, how much?

    TIA.

    2 x 2x + 300mm? That would bring me to f11 wide open, and i'd probably need to stop down 2-3 stops to offset the teleconvertors' degradation? Sounds tough, BUT i will TRY.

    i'll be taking note of the position of the moon a few nights before the eclispe just to make sure and scout out a good high location for the shoot. most prob a HDB block.

    Good idea. Should look for a spot with minimum stray light too.

    Bedok Reservior, 8th Sept, anyone interested?
