November Moon

Canon 600D and NexStar 6SE telescope.

Image of the Moon captured on 19 November 2015 with a Canon 600D and NexStar 6SE telescope. I attached the camera to the telescope using the prime-focus method, i.e. using an adapter to effectively replace the camera lens with the telescope itself. The Moon was 56% illuminated and had a diameter of 32.13 arc minutes. The Moon looked so stunning and the sky was so clear that I just had to get a shot.
