Floating in the Blue

Except under extraordinary circumstances, the moon is the only astronomical object we can see clearly during daylight hours. Most of the detail in the image cannot be seen with the naked eye. A long photographic lens and a telescope have much in common. It is rare for me to get an image such as this in focus, especially with a hand-held camera on the deck of a moving ocean-going cruise ship.
