Equipment:

Astro-Tech AT72EDII refractor, Ioptron Sky Guider Pro Mount, Canon Eos 760D camera.

Description:

Tonight's (and tomorrow night's) "Blue" Full Moon. It's called blue, not because it's the second full moon in the month (it's not), but because it is the third of four full moons in a season. All you ever wanted to know about Blue Moons is here: https://earthsky.org/astronomy-e…/when-is-the-next-blue-moon. Photo through a 72 mm refracting telescope, and a little "bluish" coloring added by me in post-processing.
