Everyone's talking about the blood red moon from a few weeks back but here we have the blue moon! This effect was gained form messing with the ISO and f-stop on my Canon Rebel T2i, attached to my new Celestron Nexstar 6SE via a T-adapter. I didn't add the blue, it just was a happy accident. I want to assume it is from the atmosphere between the moon and my scope, but does anyone have a more accurate answer? Thanks! And I hope you enjoy :)
