Last week I took my telescope (D=150mm ; F=750mm) and my old Canon 7D camera to do some tests, for fun !
Original size : 3400 pixels high, 39 pictures.
The telescope has a large aperture, which made it possible to take pictures at 1/5000 s
The focus was not easy, nor the adjustment of the horizon line.
It was really cool to see the Alps with the telescope, better than the pictures with my camera !
I will try again in better conditions on a thermal inversion day, with my 6D MkII and my computer for better focus.
Original picture with Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau and another one with Mont-Blanc


It would be interesting 
to know the distance between you and each summit. How did you manage to link the camera to the telescope?
Ciao, Alvise

Unterscheidet sich kaum von einem Panorama vom Niesen.

A great experiment, even if the quality is not the optimum ;-) ... comparing it with my panorama #35265 from the top of the Grand Ballon, I think your focal length should be more than 750mm, Jean-Yves. Did you enter the location correctly (we are in Somalia)?

I think the the maximum distance in this panorama should be about 210km (Täschhorn and Zinalrothorn) ... I've labelled some distances in my panorama #35265 with a focal length of 520mm.

I had reversed latitude and longitude!

I used a camera adapter like this one :,44777
Usually I use the adapter for astronomy photos (planets, comets, moon...) !
