About this image

Got up at 03.00 UT and found a tempting Moon hanging in the SE sky. Decided to set up the gear in the garden and spent the next two hours struggling to get a decent image. Light cloud and lots of swim didn't help. At the end of the session I could only find two half-decent images. This is the better of the two, but only here because I didn't want to come away from my early morning foray with nothing to show for it.
