Equipment
Canon EOS 300d, Canon EOS EF-S 18-55 mm @ 35 mm, Baader ND5.0 Solar Filter
Description
The end of each Saros cycle (every 18 yrs) allows for a unique opportunity to observe the rising moon exhibit the greatest possible variation in azimuth at moonrise and which translates to a maximum declination of 28.60° above AND below the ecliptic during the SAME synodic month. It is my understanding that this is the ONLY photo in existence documenting this phenomenon.
