Full Moon before Total Solar Eclipse 2017

The Moon from Austin, Texas 11 hours after full. The lunar eclipse was an eastern hemisphere affair. The full Moon makes a great kick-off for final preparations for the total solar eclipse in North America. We've been having cloudy skies and a full day of rain yesterday. I'm taking the clear skies last night as a sign of clear skies on eclipse day.

Seeing wasn't steady enough for a full disk stack, so this is the best single image of 41. Questar 1350/89mm f15 telescope with Sony a6300 at prime focus exposed for 1/60 sec at ISO 100. Image taken 2017-08-08 05:31 UT. Deconvolution in Lynkeos and final crop and exposure adjustments in Photoshop.
