Moon & Halo

10:40 PM CST
95% waxing gibbous Moon
Orion XT10i & TeleVue 35mm Panoptic
Canon 20D & 17-40mm f/4L @ 40mm, f/7.1, 1/160" ISO-100
Eyepiece projection

The above image was taken just prior to zenith transit. About ten minutes later I was treated to a gorgeous lunar halo, which was a challenge to frame even pulling back to 17mm. Wish I'd had a faster lens at my disposal but I'll be rectifying that shortly. ;-)
