Location of Photo:

Home near De Soto, Kansas.

Date/Time of photo:

April 28, 2009, 9:07 pm CDT.

Equipment:

EQ driven Canon Rebel XTi with a 300mm Nikkor lens @ f/8; 40 second exposure at ISO 200.

Description:

A Whippoorwill in a nearby woods seemed to be crying, "hurry up, hurry up, hurry up," as I rushed to set up the EQ mount and begin the exposure before the deep, purplish-blue twilight had faded away. I wanted to image the wxing crescent Moon's bright Earthshine, and capture the bright open star cluster M35 in Gemini. This is the result.
