I Give You: The Full Moon

Man, it was cold last night.
Cold because I was sitting in my garage with the door open and the lights off taking some great photos of the moon. I had the whole setup going there with the telescope on a tripod, my camera on a tripod, and a chair on a tripod... yeah, a tripod chair. Ok. It's my son's drum throne. It worked out really well.
There was a lot of cloud cover for about the first 45 minutes, but then it cleared up beautifully and I got my shots in. I'm pretty happy with the results, although there HAS to be a better way of shooting through a telescope. Maybe I'll have to machine a special mount.
Anyway, I'm between church services right now so I'm posting this.
I can't wait for Amy to get home...
