Heya,

I was clouded out for the full phase, so I had to settle for a 97.7% (98%) Waning Gibbous tonight. High phase discs are neat despite being low contrast on the features because so much more light is being reflected and it's a lot easier to get a good sample of the color of the moon when saturating what you get with RGB.

The moon looked nice last night. Tried to get a shot through the trees while it was low and yellow. Single image with a little post work.

I actually planned this shot at home in Texas with PhotoPills before we went to Durango, Colorado a few months ago. I didn't know what the top of the mountain would look like so, I'm glad it had some trees. Single image.

First time shooting the moon, challenging but fun experience.

The sunrise light was ruined by an overcast layer, but the moon was perfectly in line for this departure...

Venus was there, but not close enough. Maybe tomorrow night:-)

No, unfortunately not. Moon will be far behind Venus. It is one time opportunity to catch the moment :cry:

I am the first to admit I am not an astronomer: I don't have the knowledge or the gear to do the activity justice. That said, I do enjoy looking to the heavens and marvelling at the vast expanse of the universe and all of those trillions of stars and galaxies that lie out there. Like most of you, I have shot the moon from time to time.

Last night, as I went outside for something else, I looked up to see a crescent moon with a bright object close by. I rushed back in and got out a crop sensor body, in this case the EOS 90D, the Sigma 150-600c lens and added the Canon 1.4x MkIII extender. This gave me a field of view equivalent to that of a 336- 1344 FF lens. I took a monopod and shot back out to take a bunch of images. Here is the result. If you zoom in you can actually get a sense of (corrected to) Venus on the left.

Not up to the standard of you serious astro-photographers, but it made me feel appropriately tiny and insignificant!

Nice capture but the bright object to the left of our Moon is the planet Venus. The planet Saturn was in the East at an altitude of approx. 60 degrees.

I think that the phase of Venus was just under half, so perhaps that's why it gave off an extended appearance.

Cheers

Dennis
