Moon and Saturn (December 2006)

The moon is obvious. You'll need to look closely to see Saturn. It is that white spot at bottom center. Click here for a larger version (even then it will still be small).

Wow, the moon is so clear and detailed - I did almost miss Saturn, just a speck! Really nice image!

Gorgeous shot of the moon. I would have thought Saturn was a dust spot. Weird, since it's actually a giant gas planet!

Nice clear moon shot! I'm jealous!

Absolutely beautiful! The detail of the moon is amazing!! Jupiter looks so miniscule next to it!

Please tell what camera and lens you used. I would love to get moon shots like that. Fantastic.

Super shot of the moon. I love that you can see the craters.

@ Everyone. Thanks.

@ top5cats: I used a Canon 20D and a 100-400 mm IS L lens at 400mm, tripod mounted. It was a 1/30 sec exposure at F/5.6.
