That's an awesome shot.  What are the details on the last photo Carl?

I didn't see it myself but I did run across some articles about the "Super Moon" this past weekend.  Here are some cool shots of it from all over.  http://www.space.com/15561-supermoon-2012-photos-full-moon-images.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+spaceheadlines+%28SPACE.com+Headline+Feed%29

I have some equipment on order that will adapt my camera to my telescope. Maybe I will have some pictures to post soon.

The supermoon is a myth, it might be marginally bigger but you can't detect it with your eye.  It was only about 0.5% closer than the last full moon.

Nice article in Discover by Phil Plait, The Bad Astronomer

Killjoy!

Well I feel it was bigger, so that's what's real for me.

It's not a myth, because it is closer. It's kind of overstated with the word "super".
