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.
