This photo shows the one day old moon setting above the silhouette of Pikes Peak, as seen from a small bluff behind my old apartment complex in Colorado Springs. You can see earth shineon the moon, the phenomenon in which the light of the sun is first reflected by the day side of Earth and back on the otherwise dark face of the crescent moon, illuminating it, too, allowing us to see detail on its surface. I used a Canon 70D and a Canon EF-S 17-55mm lens to capture this image. 

I love the sight of the moon during the day. I captured this image with a Canon 70D DSLR camera and a TMB92L refractor telescope.

I stayed up the entire night on April 15, 2014, to photograph the total lunar eclipse from beginning to end. This was the second lunar eclipse I ever photographed, the first being back in 2010.

I made this animation using 13 photos taken with a Canon T3i DSLR camera through a TMB 92L refractor telescope.

I stayed up the entire night on April 15, 2014, to photograph the total lunar eclipse from beginning to end. This was the second lunar eclipse I ever photographed, the first being back in 2010. This photograph is from the height of the eclipse, around 3:00 a.m. This is a long exposure photo, 3 seconds long, taken to bring out the reds caused by some sunlight leaking through around the edges of the Earth and reflected on the otherwise eclipsed moon. I took this picture with a Canon T3i DSLR camera through a TMB 92L refractor telescope.

I stayed up the entire night on April 15, 2014, to photograph the total lunar eclipse from beginning to end. This was the second lunar eclipse I ever photographed, the first being back in 2010. This photograph is from the early stages of the eclipse, around 2:00 a.m, before the moon was completely eclipsed. I took this picture with a Canon T3i DSLR camera through a TMB 92L refractor telescope.

This photograph is from the early stages of the eclipse, around 1:00 a.m. I took this picture with a Canon T3i DSLR camera through a TMB 92L refractor telescope.

The one day old moon just before it disappeared below the horizon. Taken just after sunset in the Paint Mines Open Space in Calhan, Colorado, with a Canon 70D and Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG lens.

The four day old moon of July 2018, taken with a Canon 70D DSLR and TMB92L refractor.

Copernicus is one of the more prominent craters on the moon. It measures 58 miles in diameter and can be seen with even a small set of binoculars. I took this image using a Celestron C6 SCT telescope and ASI120MC planetary/lunar imaging camera.

Although somewhat boring through a telescope because of the lack of shadows, the full moon is a favorite photographic subject of mine. I especially enjoy the rays of debris spreading out from the crater Tycho in the lower right of the moon. Taken with a Canon 70D DSLR and TMB92L refractor telescope.
