The Moon

This gallery displays photos of the moon, or scenic pictures including the moon as an obvious element. These pictures were made in northwest Montana and in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and show the moon in various phases and in eclipse. We do not have a telescope; these pictures were taken with one of our Canon EOS lenses. See our Gear page for equipment details.
