Possibly The Most Magnificent Photos I've Ever Taken

This is my second attempt at using the Mad Hatter's telescope as the lens of my camera.  I think it turned out pretty well.
A few more days and the moon will be full.  I can only imagine that the photos will continue to get better and better.
It's fascinating to enlarge them and take a look at the individual craters and mountains.  If you look at a map of the moon you can see the exact spots that our astronauts landed and where the original flag is planted.  It's absolutely amazing.  Anyone who thinks that NASA is an unneeded drain on the economy should take a look at these pictures.  We were charged to go to the moon and we did.  We should continue to race toward the stars.
