[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth:

orbit: 384,400 km from Earth
diameter: 3476 km
mass: 7.35e22 kg

Called Luna by the Romans, Selene and Artemis by the Greeks, and many other names in other mythologies.
The Moon, of course, has been known since prehistoric times. It is the second brightest object in the sky after the Sun. As the Moon orbits around the Earth once per month, the angle between the Earth, the Moon and the Sun changes; we see this as the cycle of the Moon's phases. The time between successive new moons is 29.5 days (709 hours), slightly different from the Moon's orbital period (measured against the stars) since the Earth moves a significant distance in its orbit around the Sun in that time.

Shot info:

This is my 2006 Sept 02 evening moon shot with:

Hi Silvio,
This is a good capture of the moon, the details are clear and sharp with good composition. I thought to do my second attempt to the moon yesterday but I didn't because sky was convered :) Well done and TFS,

Hello Silvio

A classic shot of the moon. Very well taken with good sharpness and clarity. I also like your presentation. Nice work. TFS.

Ciao Silvio ma cosa fai? ti sei dato alle foto della volta celeste? per quel che ne capisco mi sembra una bella foto. Complimenti ciao gigicacco
P.S. mi raccomando torna sulla terra

Ciao Silvio.
C...o che foto. Ho provato anch'io a fotografarla dorante l'ultima eclisse (5 giorni fa) ma lungi da raggiungere questa perfezzione. Con 2 sec. di esposizione mi veniva troppo esposta o mossa per la rotazione terrestre. Complimenti
