August was poor for the Moon and planets, for me, but great for meteors.

Can't believe how quiet the sun is.

What's going on with the Moon with Saturn shot?

Unfortunately, there was a lot of glare from the Moon. In these types of shot, I usually superimpose a shorter-exposure shot of the Moon over the over-exposed image. This shows some lunar detail. I have some better examples in my gallery:

Ok, that makes sense, thanks.

And if that was the Knebworth '79 live version of Nobody's Fault but Mine, then, I was there!!!

I do! Not only did I enjoy the acts, I remember the audience throwing cans and bottles at people blocking their view. On the way out, someone shouted for "Wally" and we all joined in.
