First Quarter Moon

The moon imaged on February 15, 2005. This image was taken through the Takahashi 5 inch refractor. The exposure time was 1/2 second. The camera was the SBIG ST2000xm. The wide field of the camera allows the whole surface of the moon to fit in the frame. This image was cropped to remove a lot of the darkened sky.
