Full Moon

I have a new found interest in astrophotography…lately I’ve been reading a lot about it.  I really enjoy photographing the night sky, however it is not an easy task!  I don’t have any great pictures of the stars just yet, but I’m working on it (when the weather cooperates).  So I thought I’d share a photo of the waxing gibbous moon from a few days ago and one of the full moon that was visible two nights ago.  I never invested in a telescope…but I’m adding it to the wish list now.

Waxing gibbous moon observed on 7/27/2012 from Boone, NC.  Shot at 135 mm and cropped.

Full moon observed on 8/1/2012 from Boone, NC. Shot at 135 mm and cropped.
