There is a repeating theme this week – clear and calm temperatures, with every clear night revealing more of the Moon to see and photograph.
This week’s lunar trek continues with another evening of clear sky and an easier target.
Another clear night, another clear shot at May’s Waxing Crescent Moon in the evening sky after Sunset. Taken with my 127mm Mak-Cass telescope and iPhone 14 Pro with NightCap.
After nearly a month of waiting through overcast and wildfire smoke haze, I had a chance to see and photograph May’s young crescent Moon.
Despite the colder temperatures and increasing wind, I used my homemade Dobsonian telescope tonight to photograph the Moon approaching Full.
With excellent viewing conditions on this cool night, I took a number of pictures of the Moon with my telescope and iPhone.
I didn’t realize until tonight that I had yet to try afocal astrophotography with my iPhone.
A nearly Full Moon was on clear display tonight, lighting up a pleasantly mild July evening.
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.
I had hoped to capture a ‘red’ Moon tonight like I saw yesterday, through the Canadian fire smoke, but this Waxing Gibbous photograph will have to do.
