I took this photograph at the Naylor Observatory near Lewisberry, Pennsylvania, using the eyepiece projection technique, a Pentax K1000 SLR camera, and the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg's 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain.  Schiller is the footprint-shaped crater to the upper right.  Immediately to the right of the center of the terminator lies the lava-filled crater Wargentin.
