Harvest Moon

This weekend is the full moon- and this particular full moon which occurs nearest the Autumnal Equinox is called the Harvest Moon.  After watching the U of A football team give away a game against Oregon State and realizing that those wasted 3.5 hours of my life are now gone forever, I thought I would take a look at the moon and Uranus.  I had heard that they would be very close tonight and wondered if they would be in the same field of view at this late hour.  Unfortunately they were not, however, the nearly full Harvest Moon was rather pretty in my TEC 140 and I took the image below before heading in for the night.  The picture was taken with my Canon T2i at ISO 100 with an exposure of 1/500 of a second, acquired using BackyardEOS, and processed slightly in Photoshop CS6.
