On Wednesday night, I observed the waxing gibbous Moon with the 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain housed in the French Dome at the Naylor Observatory and the 14" f/10 Meade SCT housed in the Weiser Building.  I also took a few afocal iPhone photos.  A number of lunar features such as the craters Archimedes, Clavius, Eratosthenes, and Plato, Montes Apenninus, and Rupes Recta turned out fairly well.  Lunar north is up.

My wife and I were aboard the Pride of the Susquehanna riverboat for a jazz cruise last night.  Afterwards, I took this iPhone shot of the waxing gibbous Moon over the FNB Field on City Island.  The Harrisburg Senators were playing the Richmond Flying Squirrels (I kid you not), the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.  Note the swarms of mayflies near the stadium lights.
