    Earth shine on the moon (moon is illuminated by the reflected light from the
    earth only) was discussed by Jeff R in one of my other threads. With my
    recent trip to western NSW being time perfectly for this event, Jeff
    suggested that I have a go at photographing it.

    Well unfortunately the clouds decided that this event was to remain unseen.
    :(

    I did want to capture some star trails also, but again evening clouds put a
    stop to any serious attempt at this. I did however make a test shot on the
    second night of my trip, I had stopped at a POTD member's place for the
    night and beers were the priority, so only one shot was taken to test the
    waters for the following nights....

    As it turned out, this was the night that I should have been concentrating
    on the start shots.... oh well, the Crownies & camp oven lamb shanks were
    nice though. :)

    I still have bucket loads of pix to process from the trip, but if you are
    interested you can see some here...

    I will keep adding to this gallery as I process, but I am limited to a 5
    image per day upload on the POTD site, so revisit if you like.

    Don't panic!
    Fortunately we get to try again.
    ....and again, and again, and again.
    (Its nice to be able to schedule a shoot so far in advance, so accurately.)

    Cooool.
    Can't see any noise in that image - how is it in the original?
    (Did you use in-camera noise reduction?)

    Was that about half an hour (or less?)

    What was the source of illumination for the foreground stuff?

    (I ask because I've been known to walk around the shot with a torch or a
    flash-gun, lighting up the trees and such.)


    Nice thing about astro photography - the sky is always there.

    Thanks for the update, Rusty.
