Full Moon at Perigee 12-12-08
Early in the evening, I saw the full moon rising above the horizon and it was gorgeous. I was very disappointed to see the clouds roll in shortly after that and kind of gave up hope. At around 10:30 PM, I looked outside and saw that the moon was nearly at zenith and the skies were perfectly clear. I grabbed the Coulter and headed outside. This is the result. It's my best full moon shot so far. I'm very happy with the result. I hope to be able to get even more detail when I get the Dob Driver II installed and working.
