 Moon last night

For those who remember me, yes I'm still around.  Haven't done this for
awhile, but the September S&T article (p. 120) got my attention and I
thought I'd give it a shot.

Mare Crisium during waning phase with favorable libration:

Waning phase:

This is certainly a different view of Mare Crisium than you typically see in
photos.

Nice shot Greg! How far south do you live? That must have been low on the
horizon.

Edmonds is pretty far north near Seattle, about a two-hour drive to the
Canadian border.  Yes, it was pretty murky (moon at about 30 degrees alt),
but I persisted and took many shots, as I usually do.  Luckily, a few came
out okay.  I did some minimal processing in CorelDraw (rotating, cropping,
resampling, level equalization, and unsharp mask).  I have a C-9.25
interfaced to an Olympus C-2020 digicam.  I used to post here a lot about
two years ago when I first started using my setup and there were several
others who were experimenting with using consumer digicams for
astrophotography.  Mars got me going again, but haven't had much success
yet.  So, the moon is a nice fallback.

I'm down in Tacoma, always moaning to myself how low everything is. If you
shot that even farther north, I'm even more impressed!
