The temperature was about 80 degrees Fahrenheit minutes after Sunset. Warm, but pleasant. And perhaps most important for my topic, the sky was near perfectly clear.
Tonight’s Lunar image was from a wide-angle view. I did have shots even wider, with more trees, but I chose the cropping above for balance, acknowledging you are not getting the full perspective of the surrounding landscape and horizon.
Next Moon opportunity will be with a telescope again, for a much closer look, with more clarity.
