great shot, have seen a lot of moonshots with special lenses that don't come close.

Very nice. You've done something well that always gives me trouble--getting the moon detail while keeping the background the light blue that characterizes a morning moon. Crisp detail....well done.

Rodney,

Terrific shot. Moon detail is excellent.

I like the day moon shots better than the night I think because I see the night moon more and seldom see a morning moon. The blue background against the white moon is nicer to look at.

Hey Rod,
that's a darn good shot!
Looks just like the moon we have here, only upside down.

Very nice shot, Rodney! I'm another that finds my moon shots taken during early morning hours have more sharpness to them, I think they just look better.
