Backyard April Moon

Backyard April Moon, originally uploaded by Billius.

The Super Moon was nice but I prefer a lot of nice shadows and craters and Lunar Alpine detail.

Single shot taken with Canon 450D/Rebel XSi, 1/100th sec exposure at prime focus on a 1000mm f/7.7 Takahashi TOA-130 (on Losmandy G11 Gemini 2 mount)

Only snag - it appears I might have got the wrong box from supplier - this doesn't look like it has a One Piece Worm Block (OPWB) upgrade....
