More Morning Moon

More Morning Moon

August 23rd, 2019, 08:10 a.m. local time

Another clear morning allowed for a Day 3 of photographing the Waning Moon.  I notice a little dark spot to the left of the Moon in the above photo, and wondered if it was a speck of dirt or problem with the smartphone itself.  But while examining the series of photos I took in immediate succession, it is undoubtedly a bird, as that speck is further left in the next image.

A clear forecast all day and evening may mean being able to point the big light gun towards Jupiter and Saturn tonight.

Today’s mage settings:

  • iPhone XS
  • NightCap
  • f/1.8
  • 1/2075 sec exposure
  • ISO 24


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.
