About this image

ThisĀ  single frame of "The Old Moon in the Young Moon's Arms" was captured using a Canon 450D through my Meade ETX90 finderscope. This combination gave just enough FOV to capture the whole subject. The sunlit portion is obviously overexposed in order to register the earthshine. Note the breaks in the profile of the Southern horn
