20081120 Moon (day time)

Yesterday was the last day of my job, so before I begin my new job on the next Monday, I've two days off. I took these after bringing the kids to schools.

Telescope: Borg 45ED II

Camera: Canon 450D

Mount: Gitzo G106 (camera tripod without tracking)

0949 (GMT+8), longer exposure:-

0950 (GMT+8), shorter exposure:-

On reading the histogram, the signals are stucked in a very narrow part due to the poor day time contrast, so exposure does not really matter. However, it's always nice to use slightly longer exposure to minimize the effect of bias.
