North Sydney, Australia
Details:
Full Moon from Sydney shortly after sunset (17:52 which was sunset +9 minutes), I watched the helicopter approach and snatched this shot as it raced by, notice some light scattering on the tail rotor, also the wiggle in the tail light. Camera: Canon 5d mk ii on a Celestron 4GT, full frame, 1/50 second, ISO 800. Enhance contrast and sharpened in Photoshop.
