Nearly Full Moon

The Moon looks to be about a day short of full in this image taken at prime focus with my friends 8 inch f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. The exposure was 1/1000 seconds at ISO 800 on my Canon 20D. Rayed craters Copernicus and Tycho are prominant and the spectacularly bright Aristarchus in the upper left part of the Moon are among the easiest features to identify. Posted by Picasa
