Last night was the so called "Supermoon," where the moon was at perigee, which is the closest orbital point to the Earth while the moon was in full phase. This makes the moon appear larger by up to about 14% and brighter by up to around 30%. I went out and used my 5-inch refracting telescope to take several pictures.
Supermoon panorama (original is about 50 MP):
Supermoon panorama with saturation set very high (colors are real, just boosted):
Supermoon rainbow (I think this is just an optical effect in my telescope):
If you want to download these pictures in full resolution or in a number of resolutions appropriate for wallpapers on various devices, including iPhones and iPads, you can go to the astrophotography page on my photography website. Stay tuned for some pictures of the Sun. I'm finally figuring out how to use my solar telescope.
