The Moon and Mercury
by Mark Deprest
Photograph taken by Mark Deprest
from his backyard (Ann Arbor, Michigan).
The small dot to the right of the moon is Mercury.
It was taken on the
morning of November 24, 2000 at about 06:55 EST using a 35mm Pentax manual
focus camera and 200 speed Fuji Color Slide film.
The exposure was 1 second with
35-70mm zoom lens, zoomed to 70mm at f/3.5. The slide was scanned and
digitized by Clayton Kessler.
That image was further processed (mostly just
lighten up and sharpen slightly) using Thumbs Up 4.0 by Cerious Software.
