Lunar Imaging Session - January 21, 2019 (Super Full Moon)

The sky this evening was initially cloudy where the rising Full Moon was located. But as the Moon rise higher, the clouds breaks up and display a clear Full Moon! Tonight's Full Moon is also called the Wolf Moon and is also called a Super Full Moon! There was a total lunar eclipse that happened earlier during the day but is not visible here in Asia due to daytime. But in the US, the Moon entered into the Earth's shadow and displayed a reddish shade. For my image of the Full Moon, I used again the Borg 76ED refractor at prime focus with Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera on sturdy tripod with an exposure of 1/2000 sec at ISO 200.

Lunar Imaging Session - January 18, 2019

The sky this evening is partly cloudy but the Moon is quite nice tonight for me not to image it even with a simple tripod setup of using my portable and trusty Borg 76ED refractor with Canon EOS M6 at prime focus. 1/2000 sec exposure at ISO 400 was used to image the Moon.
