Great shots Pete. I never manage to get a decent moon shot.

Thank you Tom. Just like anything, it is all in the settings and a tripod is mandatory

Here's my take on last night. The positioning of the planets is way different. :o

Great shots Pete. I was hoping to get some shots too, but it was way to cloudy. Maybe tonight.
