Moon Jan 17, 2006

With the temperature around 61º F, I went tonight just after midnight to grab a couple shots of the moon. Once again I am really disappointed with the results. The camera continues to bounce slightly when the shutter is opened… perhaps a little more weight added to the other end. The photos themselves seem OK but they are not sharp. They say practice makes perfect (who are “they” anyway?).

Weather permitting I hope to catch a glimpse of the New Horizons probe when it launches. If nothing goes wrong that should be about 1:24 PM EST.
