The night was looking clear so started the telescope cool down in the garage. I had also read about the controls on the camera and found the feature to zoom in on the Live View to help with focusing. So tried that and a much better session. However, I am not sure if a dark or light exposure of the moon looks better aesthetically.

The night before was clear but I forgot to take out the ETX to cool before getting back from walking the dogs. But tonight I took it out during dinner. I connected the Canon after dinner and looked for Saturn. It was in the southwest and was almost behind the tree. I moved the tripod and took some images. I struggled trying to remember the settings on the Canon and accidently erased the memory card. Opps!!
But, I did get images of Saturn and the Moon. I looked at the images on the computer and Saturn was blurry but the moon wasn’t that bad.

I took a picture of the harvest moon with the Canon T3i using the 200mm lens and tripod. For image info is available at https://clearskytonight.com/wiki/Oct_5,_2017.
