Both shots were taken by attaching the camera to the scope with no extra magnification. The colouring is vastly different due to the exposure time. The top needed to be slightly less. The moon is a great target to practice with as when it's this bright the rest of the sky is bleached out making most astronomy pointless.
I'm also learning how to use different software to help correct my mistakes. As an example I have "rescued" the top picture and given it a more realistic hue.
