3% Crescent Moon with Earthshine, September 22, 2014

Chris called me on his way to work this morning and told me I better get dressed and come outside to see the slim crescent moon rising over the neighborhood with beautiful earthshine lighting up the darker side.

Stack of 15 frames in Registax, taken with Canon T5i
Moon stacking is back! Courtesy of Lightroom 5 which lets me export TIFs in the right format. I never figured it out in iPhoto after messing with it. My Canon T5i doesn't work with Adobe Camera Raw for some reason so my whole workflow got messed up. But it looks like my Lightroom workflow is working and doesn't take as much time as I thought.

Single frame with Canon T5i, fluorescent WB, f/5.6, 1.3 sec, ISO 800, 75mm, cropped
I think this earthshine beats out my first earthshine photo, but it's not as good as the earthshine stack I did in March 2013 with a darker sky in the background.
