Full Moon before Total Solar Eclipse 2017

The Moon from Austin, Texas 11 hours after full. 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.
