    Red looks like Mars.

    Hang on... where is our PlasticSpanner?
    Where is he?
    He hasn't shown his face in ages ... and Rob hasn't either! :shock:

    For he is our big astronomy photographer and knows all the stars!

    I should add that this is ONE cool pic of the moon and I wish I could get that close and still get that clarity!

    Thanks LaFoto... you're too sweet. I tried a bunch of experiments with it on
    a tripod last night. If you leave the shutter open too long, they actually come
    out blurry. I didn't realize the moon actually moved that fast. Crazy stuff! By
    long, I mean more than a couple of seconds.
