72% Full moon from March 21, 2013

A break in the clouds means a chance for a quick moon stack before heading to Chicago for the weekend. Forecast calls for even more overcast skies and maybe even some snow. What a way to start Spring!

If you look close on my final stacked image, there's a little halo artifact from the stacking process. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I'm guessing it has something to do with a large gap between some of the frames. Not a big deal for a quick stack like this, I'm not looking for perfection, plus it's still a lot cleaner than the single frame.
