JAN 5TH - WAXING CRESCENT - 12.1% - 2 DAYS 22 HRS. 2


Recommended Posts

I  observed the crescent Moon from 4 pm to 5.20 pm with 10x50s and the  Altair 80  ED-R.  

I was taking some single frames with the Olympus when a visitor arrived on the scene.  I saw it come into view on the rear camera screen and quickly grabbed the dangling shutter release. Then managed to grab  four frames before it departed the scene right 😊.

What a catch, that looks killer! the last wide image is outstanding! I guess the golden light of the setting sun is making that contrail look orange, fantastic!

Many thanks.  Yes, it was the last remnents of the sun on the contrail which made it such a vivid colour.  Very lucky as there are fewer planes in the air than there were pre-covid.

I agree with you, I like the the wider angle view the most myself.

Thanks again.
