    I searched but didn't find a similar thread in the Photography forum....

    From September 2015, near the mouth of the Merrimack River in Newburport MA. On it's way to a lunar eclipse..

    I don't shoot it often but sometimes it's nice to go out when it's not full and try to capture the shadows on the surface. I don't usually get to catch it during rising or setting, and I have had no luck taking a photo of it during an eclipse.

    Two photos, one scaled down for viewing, the other near 100% original but cropped.

    Okay, you did say, "any other moon shot", so here you go:

    Okay, okay, here are some LUNAR PHOTOGRAPHY shots, just so we're clear, LOL:

    Moonrise from my lower pasture, Nikon D3400, 200mm f/5.6, handheld
    DSC_1017.jpg

    Took the camera off the telescope so I'd get the light through the rear. I was shooting a Supermoon with my 8" Edge Schmidt-Cassegrain. You can also see the constellation Orion rising, the three belt stars are next to the telescope mount. The star Aldebaran, in Taurus, is above and right of the Moon.

    Made from the Mount Mitchell Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Mount Mitchell is to the right, out of the image, but you can see the lower slopes. The overlook is at 4200 feet elevation.

    Almost-full moon from the Appalachian State University Dark Site Observatory northeast of Boone NC. The dome to the left houses a 30" Ritchie-Chretian telescope, as seen below
    DSC00734.jpg
    DSC00730.jpg

    Full moon, shot with my 3" William Optic apochromatic f/5.9 refractor. My Schmidt-Cass and my refractor shown at Green Bank Observatory in West Virginia

    Lastly, there IS a Moon in this picture, made in August 2017 near Clemson, SC with a 6" Schmidt-Cassegrain
