For those interested in astronomy - the Moon lies approximately 250,000 miles away from planet Earth. It has an orbital period of 28 days, the time it takes to go round the Earth once. It's approximately 1/6th the size of Earth which means it has 1/6th the gravity. It has no atmosphere and turns on its axis once every 28 days which means we never see the other side of it from Earth.
The picture was taken using a Panasonic LX5, hand-held up to a Russian Intes MK67 Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope using a 20mm Celestron Nexstar eyepiece.
