    Hi folks - thanks to all for your kind comments and votes. Puss (Lila) remains a photogenic cat in that I don't think she's lost her looks from being a kitten (there're earlier shots of her in my p/f). The past couple of days have been bitterly cold which seems to affect cats as much as we humans. She's been in and out of the house like nobody's business. The picture was taken through a closed kitchen door which pleased me as it doesn't appear to have affected the sharpness of the image. Once again, thank you for your interest...

    Thanks for the interest (and votes!). What makes this shot is the telescope really. It's acting as a telephoto lens of sorts. Any point and shoot camera would have got a reasonable image but you need patience to get it right. I wrapped a finger and thumb round the camera lens then placed the palm of my hand onto the eyepiece housing to steady the camera. It was then a case of trying to get round the 'kidney bean' effect where darkness keeps obscuring the field of view due to incorrect positioning of the camera's lens in relation to the eyepiece. You can get this effect when using your eye to look through the eyepiece.
