Yes, no. 2 for me  also, there's just something about it, maybe the contrast but a lovely shot.

Lovely shots John. my only concern is that you're gonna be terribly upset when you have to miss a night due to total cloud cover!  Sad

It'll be one of those things Andy. If I can make it Sunday to Sunday, I'll have got one a night for the Spring Moonwatch.

And here's day 6



with some subtle colour

Thanks guys. I've for another one to add to the collection. I've got to download it from the SLR. I'm trying to do my first proper mosaic of the moon at the moment, busy capturing the avi's now. It's much harder with the Skymax as there's so many more sections to do  Grin
