New Moon Pictures

These were taken over a span of about 3 hours tonight. There was a haze over the Moon. I took these while waiting to try and capture the Moon and Pleiades conjunction. These are untouched photos. They do appear slightly out of focus, but I would attribute that to the haze. Photos were taken with Nikon D80 with 1.5x tele-converter and 70-300mm lens.


  1. Thanks for commenting on my iReport! Bummer that your hazy sky prevented the conjunction shots. I was really shocked I was able to get what I got. I didn't think my camera could do it.

    I'll add you to my blog roll so I can keep up. any friend of Bob's...... I look forward to keeping up with you.
