Corn Moon as Seen From Dallas, Texas on 5-Sep-2017
This image was captured in East Dallas the evening of 5-Sep-2017 within the city limits of Dallas, Texas. September 2017's full Moon is called the Corn Moon - not the Harvest Moon which is always identified as the Full Moon occurring closest to the Autumnal Equinox. This year's equinox will be 22-Sep-2017; and thus, the 5-Oct-2017's upcoming full Moon will be this year's Harvest Moon. The image above is nearly 40 years in the making, and is my first attempt imaging the Moon. Equipment used: Canon EOS 5D Mark ii, Celestron C-8 Classic Orange Tube 8" SCT, f/10 & 2,000mm.
