Waning Gibbous

With the excitement of the recent blood moon behind us I’m already planning for the next one and what I should do differently.

There are the technical challenges and to that end the problems and solutions are becoming clearer. Practice and technique trump dollars spent every time!

OK, perhaps an attempt to photograph the lunar footprints of an Apollo mission might require more than my budget will ever support but the idea is the same.

So in the spirit of practice here is our waning gibbous moon captured using a cheap second hand camera and an old entry level zoom lens. Hmm, I reckon there is room for improvement!
