*Saturn/Moon Egress*

I visited my 4th state this trip last night, in the search for clear skies. NSW looked better than Victoria, so I made a last minute dash to Albury for the Moon/Saturn occultation. Only very light high cloud. I met up with Greg Gibbs ( Capturing The Night- Photography by Greg Gibbs) and we observed from the northern shore of Lake Hume. Was a beautiful calm night.

A frame from a raw video through my C8 telescope as the Moon moved away from Saturn. I’ve selectively brightened Saturn a tad to bring out the details. The limb of the moon was super bright being very close to full.
