A wonderful sight on the SW horizon: the Moon slowly setting with a nice Earthshine and the top of trees eclipsing from time to time parts of our satellite. This was my view on the evening of November 12.

Did manage to get some shots, the first one being an RGB image processed in such way to show the very subtle colors of the Moon depicting minerals on the lunar surface.

Equipment: 115mm F/7 APO Refractor, ASI 1600MM with RGB filters at the focal plane.

A quick look at Sirius and Sirius B from the night before, in poor seeing:
