I also want to send my kudos and job well done. Those pictures are FANTASIC.
If you would grant me a little leaway I would like to say you help prove a point nasa supporters don't want people to know about the moon landing "proof case closed" photos.
Here is a guy with a $600 off the shelf telescope, a $300 (???) comercially mass produced Iphone ,a $1.99 phone app and from his back yard gives us stunningly clean pictures of the moon.
But nasa with multi-million dollar earth and spaced based telescopes, advanced computer driven photo software, advanced photographic technology (civilian and military), access to warehouses full of military and civilian satalite parts/technology, a large government budget and all we get for photographs of the lunar landing sites/ equipment left is grainy, limited focus, small view pictures that are poor even by 1970's standards.
All of which is out of our money we give in taxes.
I am not trying to hijack the thread or say we did not go to the moon.
But thanks to this OP and his FANTASTIC pictures I think it gives more evidence that NASA is either lying, incompetent or both in giving peoples demand for photo proof of the moon landings.
Again if this individual with an outlay of maybe what $900.99 max can give us stunningly clear detailed pictures of the moon from his back yard, what is NASA excuse with access to technology
am sure the OP (or any of us) would give our right arm for access/use of (given we all paid for it).
I would like to commend you on your post.
This is exactly the type of argument I was hopping some one would bring to this thread.
I hinted at it here and there but was hopping some one else would see what I was actually hopping for when I started this thread.
And you managed to say it so well.
I'm just a blue coller bloke who works hard can't spell for # but know I'm intelgent enough to see thought the lies

Have you tried imaging Jupiter ?
Deep Sky Photography is a real steep learning curve but it is rewarding, you'll probably need to invest in a guidescope to compliment your polar alignment and tracking for the really feint objects.
Start on something like the Orion Nebula (M42) that doesn't need too long an exposure for the core.
Here's one of my lunar images from March this year;
