Almost full moon

My plan for last weekend was also to take photos of the stars, as the 7D has quite nice performance on higher ISO levels. But I didn't account for the very bright almost full moon. It was so bright, that the stars were almost not visible. So I took photos of the moon instead :)

I actually felt quite stupid when I took this. The reason was, that the setup I used, the 7D with a Celestron telescope, could only capture something above half of the moon and you couldn't zoom out. And it took me quite a while to remember, that I can create a panorama from multiple shots, to capture the whole moon :) 

This is not a HDR shot, I took multiple exposures, but the didn't align properly and the HDR from a single RAW didn't look right to me. So I just created a panorama from two shots, removed the distortion and did few steps I usually do in HDR post-processing.

Panorama from two shots, taken with Canon 7D and Celestron CPC 1100 GPS telescope.
