Angel’s Moon

Meade 127mm ED APO with a Cannon 450D DSLR mounted on a Berlebach tripod using a Deluxe Giro Mount. ISO 800 at 1/250.

I wanted to try and capture both the rugged terrain and the subtle varying shades of the lunar soil in one simple picture. This picture shows the gentle swirling patterns that are hidden in the soil of the lunar sea’s and the cratered ruggedness of the lunar highlands to the South.
There is also a distant star visible above the Lunar South Pole.
