Great image John. Good job of getting the earthshine without totally blowing out the moon. We've been cloudy the past several days with 2" of rain today, rain forecast the next week. Looks like our rainy season has arrived early! My camera will get a rest.

Well done John. There's a definite pinkish/orangy tint to Mars in that shot.

Nice image John!

I got an image of the conjunction on the same night with a broad corona which formed on a patch of cloud which drfited rapidly over the Moon. I think this is 200mm.
