Equipment Details:

Orion ED80T-CF refractor, Canon T3i DSLR, tripod

Post-processing Details:

A short exposure (ISO-400, 1/400 sec) was blended with a longer exposure (ISO-400, 0.5 sec) using Photoshop to show earthshine without blowing out the waning crescent Moon.

Image Details:

This image shows the beautiful waning crescent Moon with prominent earthshine very close to brilliant Venus. It was well worth rising before sunrise to see this stunning sight!
