After I was finished writing and editing the paper due tomorrow, I stepped out onto my porch for some fresh air. There she was, hanging silently in the night sky. “Capture me,” she said. So out I went, accepting her invitation. Now that I have solved the sharpness issue with my 1200mm setup, shooting the Moon is much, much more fun (and productive).
There were intermittent cloud bands this evening. It seemed she was playing peek-a-boo with me. Many images from the somewhat short engagement were acceptable. This image was my best of the Moon in many years.
