    Requested Astrophotography

    As requested by kevinbythebeach in my thread Hit & Miss, here are a couple of my finished astrophotography efforts.

    This is the Moon, photographed in a single exposure on January 30, 2009 at 00:39:27 UT from my North Texas ranch, Location 98 28' 35"W 33 13' 32" N 386m with my Sigma SD14 through my Orion 1250mm ( 90mm ) Maksutov Cassegrain, f/13.9, Shutter 1/5th, ISO 100. This image has up oriented towards the Zenith with a field of view of 0.95 x 0.63. The Phase of the Moon was a waxing crescent with 16% of the Moon's visible disk illuminated:
