I can attach the file to a PM if you like (I've got it as my desktop now) or Email you it looks ok on my 'puterredfox said:Fantastic picture, in spite of your modesty!
The large format version doesn't fair so well though, maybe 32K is pushing it for a 1024*768 image.
Do you have a larger version sans artefacts? (I fancy a change of wallpaper)

Too true - and furthermore, in any picture with the sun and moon that close together, the sun would be so much brighter than the moon that it would totally 'burn out' the image, you wouldn't see anything of the moon at all. This is a common problem with astro pictures of two objects - believe me. Recently Mars (bright, but a lot fainter than either the sun or the moon) passed very close (in line of sight) to the celebrated Crab nebula (fainter still) in the sky, and several of my fellow-astros have been trying to get them both in the same picture, without Mars burning the whole thing out. It ain't easy!JamesAC said:It's NOT a "real" photograph: the sun and the moon subtend the same angle when seen from the earth: you can see that at a total eclipse.
No way would you see a "small" sun and a "large" moon, as depicted.
Very good shot. Were you eating a Cadbury's chocolate finger when you took the shot? It seems to have got in the way of the cameraRhythm Thief said:My favourite "moon" shot, wot I took in Greece earlier this year:
