A Gibbous Moon


Below is a gibbous moon.  The bright rayed crater at the bottom is Tycho.  North is at 1 o'clock and Mare Crisium is at 3 o'clock. 

This shot was taken at Mistletoe Observatory in Monmouth Oregon August 24, 2007 using the FSQ 106 and Astro-Physics 900.  It is the best in a sequence of 0.1 second images taken in hydrogen alpha light to reduce brightness. It is an unbinned ST8E shot.
