Crescent Moon setting over the Colorado Rockies Nov. 2001

The fine folks from the Earth Science Picture of the Day were kind enough to add my image to their site.

These shots were taken at Pawnee Prairie Grasslands (Cactus Flats) during the Leonid Meteor weekend of
Nov. 16-18.  What a wonderfully clear night we had.  These images were taken using a Pentax MX 35 mm
camera, connected to a Stellarvue AT1010 80mm, f/5.0 refractor, exposing Kodak Portra 800 film for 4 seconds.


The film I used was Kodak Portra 800, this is a new film and has very fine
grain for GREAT blowups and fine resolution.
