I am shooting the percentages of waxing gibbous moon phases as it gradually goes into the full moon on January 20th.Last night on Wednesday it was 72 %, Friday it will be 90 %, Saturday 96% and Sunday100 % visible. I zoomed in as far as I could go to keep the moon in focus with my camera on a tripod which is a big help with keeping it steady, The focal length 428.4 mm that I used is equal to 35 mm focal length 2000. Tonight it was a little slippery on the ground where it snowed over the ice that was already there but got the tripod safely in place on a spot that wasn't as icy.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!
