New moon (my best yet!)

The skies finally cleared around Washington, DC on Sunday night (November 16, 2008). I went out with my newish Canon 30D and my upgraded Coulter Odyssey and took about 100 photos of the moon. I stacked 24 images in Registax and came out with this photo which is my best moon photo yet. The smallish thumbnail is above, but I highly recommend you check out a larger version on

It's not perfect, but it's a gigantic leap up from my early attempts. I look forward to getting the Tech 2000 Dob Driver II Rim drive on my scope so that I can take photos with less effort in "bumping" the Coulter to track.
