Thanks. We ate dinner out last night and I saw this in the sky going back to the Jeep. Then I had to check that was really Jupiter, then I had to figure out how to frame. I have a 500mm f6.3 telephoto that works fairly well for the moon, but needed more fov.

Kind of stinks that the only clear nights we have are full moon. At least I made the best of it.

Also thought of a better title today. 'It's Luna, by Jove!'
