    Our Moon 8/4/07

    Hi All

    The weather here in Wahington Pa. has been very cloudy lately. Early this morning right around 4:00am, I got up and had a look outside. There was a break in the cloud cover so I set up the 8 inch and captured a few quick photos using my sony cybershot and a 40mm lens.

    I cleaned the photo up using photo shop cs2. Its going to be clear here this evening and we have a star party going on, so I am headed down to the observatory to help out, and maybe afterward take a few photos using the 10 inch refractor. Clear skies to all Paul

    Very nice Moon shot. It isn't often that you see the Moon with this illumination -- takes getting up very early!

    The detail is stunning!

    I was going to count the visible craters but then I realized I have to go to work tomorrow so I don't have enough time.



    1, 2, 3, 4, 5... Oops, I started anyway.
