The Super Moon of June 2013

Detailed Information:
There was so much hype in the news about this being the super moon as it was the closest full moon of 2013 that I decided, the skies being clear, I would turn the tables on the man in the moon who has ruined so many clear nights for me. Like a paparazzi I stalked his gradual ascent and when he was sufficiently high to be clear of the roof line I snapped away. His privacy for my imaging time; seems like a fair trade. Enjoy!

This is a 2 frame mosaic that I assembled. Each frame is composed of 30 subframes taken through a hydrogen alpha filter for 0.007 seconds. The images were aligned and combined and then the mosaic was assembled.
