Low in the western sky, the Moon had a warm tint to it this early time of the evening (7:41 pm PDT).

Shot using the 2x extender on my FE 100-400mm lens and Sony a7rIV. This is a 66% zoomed in crop.

I am so missing the moon.... I went out in my van, set up and shot through a sucker hole in the clouds after a 30 minute wait, and it was only a bit above the horizon. (11 degrees)

Minolta 400mm camera lens (@1200mm) and ZWO ASI183MM camera. Best 1000 frames of 1600. Reduced in size a fair bit.

34.4 % Waxing - Oct 3, 2019

Here's one you won't see every day...full moon, hours before eclipse, with the space station on a perfect midline transit (19 transit frames combined into 1). Used a hybrid setup, Sony A7R3 and Canon 100-400 II at 10fps.

Doubt I ever get a shot like this again.

Crescent Moon. I pulled out all of my optical stops to get this, Nikon D7100 (DX), 600mm f/4 ED-IF AIS Nikkor and Nikon TC-300 (2x). Very little cropping was required.

This is my first attempt at this type of shot. . .I just got the lens back from the Canon spa and thought this would be a great way to check the focus.

Tonight... from my driveway (no time to pack up and go out) 54.3 Waxing Gibbous at only 18 degrees elevation.

400/4.5 camera lens @ 1200mm + ZWO ASI183MM camera on iOptron AZ Mount Pro. Best 1000 frames of 1600. Firecapture, AS!3, IMPPG, Astra Image and LR6. Reduced to 2048px (about 40% of original)

Man I can hardly wait for a high moon to shoot. hehe

First time trying a Kenko 2x TC on my scope. It's did pretty well I think. Best 200/350 images stack in Registax. Total focal length is 1800mm.
