Still trying to image Saturn, which is just 4 days past opposition (Earth exactly between the Sun and Saturn). First reasonably clear night in weeks, but the nearly full moon is now the elephant in the room, lighting up the sky, casting shadows like it was the sun, and drowning out images of all else in the sky. Here is last night's waxing gibbous moon with a Canon Eos 760D through an 8 inch Celestron reflector at 1/400th sec exposure and ISO 800. Seems appropriate in the week of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. Saturn will have to wait.
