Moon and Mars / by Conor Cunningham

Rumours had it that Mars would be rising with the moon today. I tried to get the camera into position but I'd had a couple of glasses of wine with dinner, so things got a little unsteady for a bit, but I managed to get this snap

f/4, 200mm, ISO 400 with an exposure of 4 seconds. Mars is the reddish circle to the left. The light is sunlight reflecting from the moon.

I also tried to expose the moon somewhat more accurately. With a little bit of post-processing, Mars was evident. Smashing.

Time for bed.
