I think this is the best photo of the moon I've ever captured. It's a layering of 2 separate stacks, both of 20 exposures each for a total of 40 exposures.

Taken from my backyard in Byron Bay NSW, Australia with a Celestron 9.25" SCT w/ Focal Reducer (6.3) and Canon 70D. Backyard EOS, AutoStakkert & PS6 used for capture and post processing.
This photo (like most of mine) is now public domain.

That was the second-highest travel volume this century, according to AAA, but with COVID-19 fears and quarantine orders only now starting to ease, it’s safe to say this year probably won’t attract numbers anywhere close to that […]
It doesn’t do you much good to come up with a brilliant concept that you can’t translate into a working real-world prototype. Whether you’re thinking about building a home, a mechanical tool or a toy, that’s where the magic of computer-aided design and drafting software like AutoCAD comes into play. The longtime leader in the […]
Memorial Day has always been the traditional start to the summer season — and there’s never been a summer with more people more ready to get out and enjoy life outside their home than this one. Of course, food will be a big part (if not the centerpiece) of all of our summer celebrations, so […]
