Nearly Full Moon Rising

July 16, 2019 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Our moon is especially beautiful and bright tonight. Notes: AstroTech 6" Ritchey–Chrétien f/9 1350mm, Nikon D750 32 x 1/500 sec, ISO 3200, stacked in AutoStakkert 3.0.14.

What's cool, is Jupiter is just up along the ecliptic from the moon, and I swung the same setup there and captured a very dim shot of our system's largest planet along with three moons, Europa, Io, and Ganymede.

Another one from earlier this evening, a plane flying through while I was setting the focus on the Nikon/AstroTech.
