This is a prime focus shot of the 2005/3/3 occultation of the first magnitude star Antares by the Moon that I took with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel DSLR camera and Tony Donnangelo's 102mm f/8 Takahashi FS-102 apochromatic refractor. The time was approximately five minutes prior to the disappearance of Antares at 11:05 UT.
