Moon, 2008 May 10

I took this picture using eyepiece projection looking through a 4.5 inch refractor. I'm tempted to flip the image around so that the Moon looks like it would in the sky (a telescope flips it backwards on both axes and a right angle prism was used for ease of viewing which flips one of the axes back so this is flipped east for west). This image was taken with the lens at 54mm focal length and at f/8 with an exposure of 1/125 seconds, ISO 200. The exposure was a bit short, so I had to do some tweaking in Picasa to make the image look brighter (mostly).
