Here's my telescope.
It's a 6" reflector that I built some 30 years ago. It is equipped with an equatorial mount, from Edmund Scientific.

I have a 35mm Canon F-1 that I use with a eyepiece adapter. With the adapter, I can use various eyepieces to give an effective focal length from 1200mm to 12,000mm.

 
Here is a shot of the moon (half moon).
1/125 second exposure at 1200mm with Kodak ASA400 color film.
