This may be a repeat. I'm not sure, but even if it is, can you get tired of seeing this? Wish we could get this close to the planets. What we need is a Hubble. Then we could try to see Uranus.
To get this photo Paul shot through his fairly powerful telescope's (not a euphemism) viewfinder. I'm not sure what we could get with just our camera, but it's certainly nothing like this. I'd like to take this photo during a Harvest Moon, but dragging out the telescope, getting it set up and calibrated take time.
Pre-plan, you say? That would make sense. We're a little low on that around here. But lunacy? That we have.
