A comparatively cold but nonetheless pleasant Spring evening tonight made for the ideal conditions to take some pictures of the sky.  First up, the Moon, as it was still rising in the East.

The Moon was not my only target.  Stay tuned in the coming days for more images from tonight’s session.

Image settings for reference:

  • f/5.6
  • 1/500 sec exposure
  • ISO 100
  • 300mm lens
  • Minor post-processing in PaintShop Pro


I write frequently about astrophotography, technology advice, and my other interests like science fiction. I have over 30 years of experience in computer programming, information technology, and project management.
