Perigee Eve’s Silhouette

The evening before the Moon’s prigee to Earth, just before full, silhouetted by trees on the western most ridge line of Nisene Marks.

I wasn’t expecting to set up tonight, and did not have enough time to prep, just grabbed the Canon 350D, threw the scope on a mount and started shooting. Aperture stopped down to ~f/20 to allow both tree and Moon to focus, since they were only some 500-700 yards away.
