Lunar Crescent over U of H Observatory

Lunar Crescent over U of H Observatory

As the Sun sets, the crescent Moon is visible above the University of Hawaii 2.2 m Telescope dome. We would have preferred a new moon for this tour, but the weather was phenomenal, nonetheless.


This version of the wide field shot has been lens corrected and perspective adjusted to make the observatory body appear perfectly linear. Note the resulting distortion of the moon, and, in this case, the white corner of the frame.
