Hi All,

The Waxing Gibbous Moon on 05-23-10,

The Moon barely fits in the FOV of my homemade 16" F4.5 Newt. scope, taken with my QHY8 CCD camera, luckily this camera has anti-Blooming gates...and a deep enough well, so I'm able to take very bright objects at full aperture with out it saturating.

This is 1/1000 sec exposure.
