Full Moon Astrophotography!



I got very desperate to test the 83-500 project scope.  So desperate that I braved the full moon to take some test shots.  It actually became an interesting evening and I learned a lot about this little scope. 

It was an unusual evening in January.  The sky was pretty clear, save for some wispy clouds that formed overhead, and the daytime temperature was in the mid 50's.  Even by 11:pm it was only a smidge below 40 so a comfortable winter night!  I took some test shots that came out better than I expected and I learned a bit about "moonlight landscape" photography.
