Very cool, almost three dimensional, shot Dennis.

Cool shot. I love it.

I took a shot of this tonight and didn't realize I was getting the "moos" :-), Venus and Jupiter. I was shooting it because there was low lying fog on the marsh and the sun was setting behind it with geese flying overhead. I'll post if I can get it downloaded tonight. Or course, I had the high school as my background. Didn't have time to get a better location before the sun set.

Wonderful shot. I wish I could say that the clouds prevented me from getting a shot I had painstakingly set up, but the truth is that I kicked myself when I found out the event had occurred. But, the clouds were so thick I probably couldn't have seen it if I had known about it.

Superb composition, in both Dennis' and yours shots.

I'd like to try it myself, with my more modest equipment, but looking at my 'Skymap' astronomy predictor, it'll need a sunset expedition up our local hill because of an obstructed southern sky at home, followed by a dangerous descent, as we have wintry weather at present.

A little more than a year ago we had avery clear night sky, with both the moon and Mars shining bright. I made a try to take a shot of Mars with the 600 mm+2XTC. OK, it did make a spot on the screen, but it could nearly have been confused with a hot pixel. This is a 100% crop of the shot with 1200 mm lens, heavily pp-ed to get the most out of it:

But then, as I experimented with even more extreme pp-ing, I discovered the capacity of the sensor. This is the same shot, taken with a DS camera, 6MP sensor. IT DID REGISTER THE TWO MOONS PHOBOS AND DEIMOS!!!! Still nothing for the wall, but truly amazing how sensitive the sensor actually is!

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but your very beautiful picture made me recall this.
