Observing location
Lund, Sweden
Canon 750D

I was casually wondering how good a photo I could get of the Moon with a handheld Canon 750D and a 250mm lens. So I pointed the camera and pressed the button. OK, so first time around I forgot to turn the flash off. Second time around... I wasn't expecting anything quite this good!
