"Lunar Crossing" is what happens when opportunity meets preparation. Having my equipment already focused and exposed for the moon, capturing the plane was as simple as squeezing the shutter. The strong moonlight cutting through the thin clouds also gave the perfect backdrop for what would be an otherwise-invisible plane silhouette. This image was captured by combining images from two telescopes- one for the background (and the plane of course) and one to resolve the moon in detail.
The size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1/2" white border for handling and framing.
The signature will be applied directly to the image (see the preview for an example), as well as the edition number. Since these are produced at my home rather than a commercial print lab, they will arrive unframed in a rigid carboard mailer, for you to frame at your discretion. All prints are guaranteed for quality
