This “young” crescent Moon was captured on 1/26 from the parking lot of our condo. At that time it was thin enough and set early enough that it had no impact on astrophotography, but in a few days it will become annoyingly bright and late. Accordingly, we’ll be returning home soon, although I am not looking forward to the gloomy weather that will plague the Portland area for months to come.
I have captured some other targets that aren’t yet processed, and probably won’t be until after we get back home.
It was a great trip. Aside from some very cold nights early on, the sky has been clear more often than not. The days have been mostly sunny and warm, and we’ve explored places we hadn’t seen before, and added others to the list for next year.
