Very impressive that you were able to photograph more than half on your first try!

I appreciate it. This was a cellphone shot too. I'm getting ready to order the mounts for my D5300 so I can get some really good shots.

Good job. Google "chromatic aberration" and see if your image processing software can remove it.

Do more expensive telescopes have better optics for this or is it pretty standard for most telescopes?

Yeah, I tried to lessen it some with Lightroom, but I think it was worse because the shot came from my phone rather than my camera shooting RAW.

Urban area or somewhere with less light pollution?

I took this on top of Palomar Mountain which is a popular place for star gazers.
