Waning half moon

Waning half moon: The waning moon one day after half moon, shot in the dawn. The darker the sky the more contrast one has on the moon's surface. But in summer one has to get up damn early for this ;-) I used the Photoshop Neat Image plugin to reduce noise and an unsharp mask before scaling the picture — Nikon D200, William Optics ZenithStar 105mm f/7, 2x Nikon Telekonverter, ISO 400, 1/30s, Rapperswil, 19 June 2006 05:25 MESZ
