For my several astronomy readers out there, it has been a while since I posted a good astrophotography image and article. I hope this one makes up a bit for the absence.
My hope is to capture more waning images of the Moon, as I have an ample supply of waxing images. Here is one example, a few days after the last Full Moon. The only issue for me is that I do not have a clear few of the East from my backyard, so I have to wait past midnight to get a picture like this. Of course there is a flip side, getting up before dawn, and I may have to employ this time shift to reach my goal.
