Night Sky, Half Moon

(Toledo, OH) The lack of clouds and haze this evening made for some spectacular views of the moon and stars. The southern sky at dusk lit up with only half of the moon's light, and some cropping and saturation with photo-imaging software brought out the moon's craters.

Of course, with the moon you have to take a hundred pictures to get one decent image, but it is worth the wait. I find that it is better to get a smaller, sharper image that can be cropped than to fill the camera's display screen with a massive-but-blurry moon shot.

Oh, and tripods are must, as is patience with camera settings.
