Since it will be raining the night when the Full Moon occurs, I’ve decided to get a fast image of the Harvest Moon one day before, from an agricultural field (quite appropriate for this Moon). The low altitude of the Moon and some smoke from a nearby fire made the view quite interesting…

Equipment: 200mm Newton, ASI 174MM, Red filter. Mosaic of 15 frames, resized to about 70% from original.

    1. Thank you Majed! The scope is a 200mm diameter Newtonian with a focal length of 1000mm. A 2.7x Barlow was used in front of the ASI174MM camera. All was placed on an EQ6 equatorial mount.
