Moon - 2018-01-10

I was recently asked about the best way to photograph the Moon with a DSLR. It has been a long time since I did that, so I decided to have a go. On the morning of 10th January 2018, the waning 36% Moon was clearly visible in the morning light and I set up my Canon EOS 1Dx on a tripod in the garden. I took plenty of frames and stacked the best 100 in Autostakkert. Final processing was done in Photoshop. I am happy with the result and particularly like the blue morning sky and subtle presence of the waning Moon.
