The (Almost) Full Moon
5 Apr. 2012

Nearly full moon

This is a shot of something I almost never photograph, but I was out again attempting to shoot Venus near the Pleiades as the moon was rising, so I swung the scope around to capture a few shots. The moon is about a day away from being full. Photo details: 1/500 sec. @ ISO 400 with a Nikon D700 and Borg 100ED scope + 1.04x field flattener.
