Meade Saturn 4.5 inch, f/8 newtonian reflector, with a Celestron 32mm plossl. Taken with a Olympus C-750 UZ. 1/125 second, at f/2.8, ISO 200.
Beautiful Moon setting over the northwest horizon behind some electrical wires out in the distance, on an extremely cold morning, for southern Arizona. I took this while waiting for Saturn to climb high enough for a good view. An interesting feature to notice in this photo, is the Moon's egg-like shape, due to atmospheric distortion.
