More Morning Moon

Another clear morning allowed for a Day 3 of photographing the Waning Moon.  I notice a little dark spot to the left of the Moon in the above photo, and wondered if it was a speck of dirt or problem with the smartphone itself.  But while examining the series of photos I took in immediate succession, it is undoubtedly a bird, as that speck is further left in the next image.

A clear forecast all day and evening may mean being able to point the big light gun towards Jupiter and Saturn tonight.

Today’s mage settings:

  • iPhone XS
  • NightCap
  • f/1.8
  • 1/2075 sec exposure
  • ISO 24

One thought on “More Morning Moon

  1. It is good to have reliable clear skies. I got some nice views of Jupiter, Saturn, and Mizar-Alcor. I’m hoping for clear enough Sunday morning to record the occultation of Zeta Tauri.
