A Meade DS series Saturn 114mm reflector telescope on a Meade alt-azimuth mount, and a Olympus C-750 UZ digital camera. Exposure time: 1/200 second, at f/2.8, ISO 50.
Waning Gibbous Moon in Scorpius. Some detail is visible on the east side, with the full Moon occurring 17 hours earlier. Antares was also nearby, but too far away to fit in the frame.
