About this image

The Moon was riding high in a crystal-clear sky and Venus was very obvious in the SE. Even though the S cusp is a bit darkened by vignetting (the image circle my telescope straddles the full frame sensor of the DSLR) this is pretty close to the 'classic' last quarter image produced by, I think, the Lick Observatory in the '50s/'60s. Emulating that I now need to dig out a good first quarter image and see if I can composite them!
