Full Moon at Kabini- through the telescopic lens


Full moon overhead, and cool breeze in the hair. Overall, a b-e-e-a-utiful night. The land was absolutely illuminated, so much so that if one stood at the water's edge, we could see right across the river to the Nagarhole National park. This was the perfect night in the month of December, on the banks of the Kabini, at Orange County Resorts and it was time to set up the telescope and show the guests the moon. As I was painstakingly setting up the telescope, and talking about star gazing to the guests, Dina brought out her tipod and camera and tried her luck at taking a nice photo of the full moon. Well, I should say she did get a good photo....
