    Captured at 10:03EST in Pennsylvania.
    Beginner with Canon Rebel XT 18-55 lens.
    Was unable to zoom very far with the lens.

    Wow this is so weird.
    Everyone all over the world all taking pictures of the same thing at the same time.
    I recognize those two little stars : ) I have a few with them in as well.
    I'm just dumping my memory card to make more room (i nearly ran out already).

    Good job on the pic btw. Nice and clear with good color.

    What happens when you set your tripod up at 7:30 PM leaving it outside while you run in and out with the camera all night? It gets a little frosty...

    Hehe
    im right accross the deleware from philly. I shot about 150 pics with my 18-55 lens. Kinda sucks that i have to crop out so much. Also didnt have a tripod which severely hurt my pics. And i couldnt get anything worth keeping until i went slower than .5"

    oh well. The cold was good for my other hobby, home snowmaking

    mrodgers, that is an awesome picture that you cropped. The detail of the moon is great.
