Ohio astroimager John Chumack captured a delicate waxing crescent Moon from his observatory in Dayton, Ohio, on Thursday, December 29, 2011. He used a 10-inch Meade SCT, an f/6.3 focal reducer, a Canon Rebel Xsi camera set at ISO 400, and a 1/60-second exposure. What a pretty way to ring in the new year and remember the last days of the old year!

Happy New Year!
