Another moon image…it looked cool, so why not?

Nikon D7000 with a Tamron SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD lens/Tamron SP AF 2X tele-converter shot at F/13 and a 1/20 of a second shutter speed.  ISO 100.  Focal length: 600mm.  IMAGE CROPPED.

What caught my eye about this are the craters towards the dark side; very pronounced, methinks.

Just for fun, I did some exposures by touching the shutter button, and not using my remote release; all of them were soft.  This image was shot with my remote release.

What a dichotomy these recent shots were.  The stars shoot and the moon shoot, which were so quiet, sandwich the massive roar of the machines at BIR.
