Description

We had a spectacular lunar halo last night! As usual, this phenomenon spanned 45 degrees across (as measured in pixels in Photoshop).

This is an HDR blend of 6 different exposures, ranging from 1/1,600 s for the moon itself to 2 s for the halo. It was my first time actually using my DSLR w lens for astrophotography. I've always used it on a telescope w t-ring.
