A nice quarter-moon last night, casting shadows and demanding attention.
Still high in the sky, shots are fairly crisp. Above is a 1/30-second shot at ISO 100 using a Celestron 6" refractor as a prime-focus lens for my Nikon D5100 DSLR.
As the moon sinks, it gets oranger and sharp focus is impossible. This is a 1/5-second shot.
