FANTASTIC. What power of magnification are you using?

Aunt Debbi/kurts mom said...

Wonderful shots. I saw this from a distance and was awed.

Lovely shots.

Those are exquisite, Christopher. I saw a somewhat similar view last night but have yet to master the art of photos at night. I'll practice when the weather gets warmer.

I saw the moon last night and wished I could photograph it...thank you for doing this for me...It is wonderful.

We noticed the same eerie Earthshine on the dark part of the moon last night, while driving in the country. Nice pics!

Thanks y'all. Usually this lineup hides behind the trees. Last night it was peaking out along the edge of the trees in the western view.

Lola I put the camera on the S setting which lets me change the shutter speed and try increments of one second of leaving the shutter open. The camera has a 12x zoom. I just zoom in til I like the framing so I can't tell you what exact zoom it was.

Cool pics. I'm pretty sure that star is a planet though. Probably Venus. We admired it the other night.

Wow! LOVE your pics!! Did you see them Friday night (Jan. 30th) around 7:30 CST? The moon was "on its' back", and the star/planet dangled below like a charm from a bracelet...very cool.
