Rising Waning Crescent Moon over Mt. Hamilton

I rose early again this morning to meet 4 friends to try once more to photograph the rising Crescent Moon over Mt. Hamilton. Can you see it? You may have to click the photo once or twice to view larger. Though the sky was much clearer this morning of fog, low clouds, and haze we were competing with the later hour and approaching dawn. I couldn’t see it with my naked eye. Thankfully my camera did, and I was able to tease it out using Lightroom4.

We shot the sunrise shortly after this. I hope to post a photo from that later. I used my new Solar filter for it.
