Stunning! Great natural-looking detail in the earth-lit side of the moon. I couldn't help but recognize 4,7, and 9 Sagittarii near Venus and 11 Sagittarii off to the south/left. And then HR6617 a moon diameter away and 58 Ophiuchi further to the north/right. I took advantage during the next early crescent to give it a shot, but couldn't get away with anything as close-up as yours. Still, I found some foreground stuff to enhance the shots... - Bernie ---- Joe Orman <joe.orman@xxxxxxx> wrote: > Here's a shot I took while camping near Quartzsite on November 26 -- Venus > and the crescent moon setting together: > http://joeorman.shutterace.com/Moon/MoonPlanets_111126_8710.html > Identification of the background stars is left as an exercise for the reader. > --Joe Orman > > Photo Pages: > http://joeorman.shutterace.com/Gallery.html > > > -- > See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please > send personal replies to the author, not the list. > -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
