The Moonscape


I shot this through a friends telescope.  We were at a telescope party for a local elementary school where the kids learn about astronomy.  After the kids were done we got out our cameras and began shooting. The terminator is where all the action is at.  The line of light and dark, where the shadows reach into the light and specks of light reflect off of mountain peaks in the inky dark.  That line is where you can really see the detail of the moon.  The shadows bring out the details more than you can see in direct light.
