November 29, 1998

Finally, after many days of rain (hard rain), a clear, cold night. It was darn cold out, so I decided to take these through my bedroom window. Not bad for dual-pane PUD glass. Saturn was not as easy to focus through glass and warm air distortion. I did not take images of the entire moon as I wanted to get good contrast on the low-sun-angle area of the moon. With these exposure settings, the brightest side would be nothing but white.
