Observing the Sea of Tranquility from the tranquility of your bedroom

Here’s a shot of the waxing gibbous moon I just snapped from our bedroom window. It was just after 5pm. Camera settings: 600mm lens, f 9.5, t 1/1000s ISO 200, ev -1. Sigma 150-600mm lens handheld with no image stabilisation on Canon 6D full frame. Final image cropped to a square with side 768 pixels from original 5472×3648 for the website.

In July, it will be 50 years since humans first set foot on Earth’s biggest natural satellite. You did know we have more than one moon, didn’t you?
