This was taken last year and is still my favourite image, it was taken just as the sun was setting and i was setting up my equipment. I looked up and saw the plane and thought “that would be a good image if it went straight over the moon”, i lookes again and litteraly had seconds to aim the scope and take the picture, because i was still setting up i didnt have the camera settings and focus right which was unlucky as i caught the plane at the perfect time. luckily i was able to recover some detail in photoshop using a lot of contrast and sharpening, ive just recently used topaz to reduce some noise on it.
