Snow Moon rising over the Whipple Observatory
24

The native American tribes in the USA have named the full moons. February's is the Snow Moon. Here it is rising over the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory as seen from Amado, Arizona, USA. http://www.sao.arizona.edu/FLWO/whipple.html

In the wide view the 6.5 meter telescope is on the summit and the lesser telescopes are to the right of the moon. The narrow view shows the group of smaller telescopes, antennas, and buildings which are down off the summit.

I used a preset film simulation in my X-T3, the Fred Herzog Kodachrome V1 simulation by Mark G Adams modified a bit in Fuji RAW Studio. I do understand that for maximum sharpness and detail that RAW is required, however I prioritized a certain look instead.

Rising at the main complex

Wide view to include the 6.5 meter telescope on the summit.
