Moon rising.

Post by smerral »

I had my DSLR rigged with my 60mm scope ready for yesterday's penumbral eclipse but, of course, it was wet and cloudy. But I did capture this shot of tonight's rising moon. :)

I love the image here. If you listen carefully you can hear Credence Clearwater Revival!
Kind thoughts, Bob

Libration has pushed Crisium right back to the limb?

Brian, Crisium is near the limb but the terminator is adjacent to it as the moon is just past full.
