I was going to photograph the Moon but put the rubbish out first. I saw the ISS or maybe another bright satellite pass close to Arcturus before fading into Earth’s shadow.
 
 
I snapped the Moon with my DSLR at 300mm focal length, ISO 100 and 1/500 second exposure.

Thanks, Phillip! :)

Nice Moon Shot!  Seeing a bright satellite going by a colored star like Arcturus would really be nice.

 

Was able to take an 80mm by 900mm Frankenfractor I have been putting together with parts I have been collecting.  Too much turbulence and haze in the sky to really do a star test, but looking at what was left of the terminator on the Moon, I had what I think was an acceptably sharp view of a few craters.  I need to line some things with flocking to cut out glare from the almost full Moon.

 

Best Regards,

 

Bill

Hi Bill.

 

Have you tried a Moon filter, variable polarising filter or even sunglasses. They all work.
