Posted By: Pete_XL, 11-13-2016, 11:43 AM

Tomorrow afternoon is Supermoon-Time. The moon is at its nearest distance to earth since 70 years.I attached a 480 mm telescope to my K3 II and shot it (nearly full) near our church tower shortly after moonrise this evening, 4 degrees above the horizon.

That is a good image Peter, we had cloud cover and didn't get to see it. What telescope are you using?
