Photos of the Moon!

I decided recently to taking some pictures of the moon recently, the weather’s been kind of clear at night of late so the moon’s been nice and clear (mostly)… this is what I’ve come up with.

These were all taken with my Panasonic G3 and a 100-300mm 45-200mm zoom lens. Some cropping and colour correction was later done during ‘processing’ in Adobe Lightroom.

Keep watching the sky

Looks like tonight might be interesting…
What am I talking about?
Meteors…
Apparantly tonight (and the next few nights, although tonight will be the best) we’re in for a cosmic firework display. The Perseid meteor shower is due to hit the northern hemisphere from the direction of the Perseus constellation and light up the night’s sky with lots of firery goodness at an extremely frequent rate! It’s going to be the best show we’re going to get until 2015… so go go go… i’m heading to a window now!!
