A Very Full Moon
A Very Full Moon
A Very Full Moon
Details
Date Taken: 09/30/2012
Photographer: Aaron C.
Location: Cologne, MN
Telescope: Orion Skyquest 6" Dobsonian (purchased nearly 12 years ago from Orion and still working great!)
Other Camera: Canon PowerShot SX230 HS
Processing: A little Photoshop level adjustment is all that was needed
Exposure: Single Exposure, 1/80 sec, f/5.6
Other Equipment Used: Orion Moon filter
Notes:

I was particularly happy with the way Tycho is captured in a natural state - without the tones in tact. Often times, the white highlights are blown out in such photos of the moon, but my Orion Moon Filter did a great job of tempering the light. The contrast is rich and the edges of the moon are particularly sharp, without fringing.
