It’s been a long time since I tried a full disk image of the moon with a DSLR. The moon wouldn’t quite fit into the field of view of my SC8 at f/10, so this is a mosaic of two separate images. The result isn’t quite as sharp as a dedicated lunar and planetary imager, but not bad for a quickie of a beautiful full moon. It’s neat to see just a sliver of terminator slipping under the moon’s south pole.
