Up early again. Headed for Mauna Kea, but not on foot this time.


So here's the moon. I've never looked into amateur astrophotography, but I'd like to. I see people coming up with spectacular night time images of the Milky Way, for example, using ordinary equipment. I'll have to try that.


This is the boring old (sorry, new) moon. I don't know whether the luminous cloud surrounding the lit portion is a lens problem, or whether it's just something we don't see with the naked eye. Similarly, right at the terminator (I think that's what it's called) there are jagged structures. Are these actual lunar structures, or just . . . or just whatever. Got to learn.


Anyway, the moon.
