Photographer's Note

Some statistics about the moon

Distance from Earth 384,400 km
Equatorial radius 1738.1km
Polar radius 1736.0km
Surface gravity 1.62 m/s2 (Earth is 9.81 m/s2)
Mean orbital velocity 1.023 km/s
Recession rate from Earth 3.8 cm/yr

This is my second attempt to photograph the moon. From the pic I posted yesterday, I received comments about the chromatic aberration. This time Ive made some slight alterations in Photoshop (I adjusted the brightness and colour balance) to reduce its effect. Beyond that, its been cropped and sharpened.

Kind regards,
