Meade DS Saturn 4.5 inch newtonian on a Meade alt-azimuth mount, and a Olympus C-750 UZ. 1/125 second exposure, at f/2.8, ISO 50.
Waning Gibbous Moon in Taurus, at 31 degrees altitude. An interesting feature to notice, is that due to the Moon's libration over the month, a small sliver of land past Oceanus Procellarum is visible at the left side of the Moon.
