EquipmentNikon D50 with telephoto lens set at about 100 millimeters. I used auto exposure, and I didn't have my tripod so I set my camera on top of my car for stability.
DescriptionI had gone out to the Astronomy Society of Kansas City's dark sky site near Butler, Missouri, for a night of astronomy when I saw this beautiful sky with a 2 day old Moon (1 day, 23 hours).
