My first earhshine photo
      #5733904 - 03/15/13 11:11 AM

I was not able to spot Panstarrs comet, but at least I got lucky as clouds disappeared revealing young Moon. It's still far from perfect, way too blurry, but still much better than my very first attempt at shooting the Moon. Not sure if it was bad focus (did my best on the stars using home-made Hartmann mask), too long exposure (1.6 seconds) or atmosphere (the Moon was quite low over the horizon at the time).

Shot with Sony DSLR-A200 at prime focus of Sky-Watcher BKP15075 on EQ3-2 mount. 10 frames stacked manually in Krita (it was a pain, but I couldn't get Registax to cooperate).
