Description

Every night the last few weeks there have appeared a few gaps in the clouds for just a short while, usually no longer than an hour. Accompanying these teasing gaps have been strong winds, 15-25mph (24-40kph). Not much chance of shooting any targets on my tripod... Last night, though, with the moon nearly full, I decided to take a real picture of the moon for the first time with the RedCat.

I shot nearly 500 frames at 1/800", ISO 800, but the clouds were moving quickly, forming and disappearing, often right in front of the moon. I ended up with 200 frames and this is the result.

I hope you like it and, in any event, thanks for taking a look.
