January 5th 0750 GMT MoonThe repeat performance the morning after did not work so well.January 4th 0740 GMT MoonClear skies were not frequent in the first week of January but I caught the Moon through a gap in the cloud with my Mak and DSLR at 300mm focal length, ISO 100 and 1/500 second exposure.January 1st 0325 GMT MoonIt was not our original plan to stay up that late but we had been watching TV until 0230 GMT. I thought we could stay up a bit longer and chat to my wife's family, as they saw in the new year in Chile. It was great to see them, even on a computer screen. The, of, course, there was the Moon. It was well below zero, so I did not take a telescope out and used my DSLR instead. I used it at 300mm focal length, ISO 100 and 1/1000 second exposure.
