The Moon nearly full

It started out to be a good opportunity to do some astrophotography last Saturday evening so I rushed what I thought was all I needed out to the observatory. Wrong. I forgot this. Then I forgot that. Then I forgot the other thing. By the time I opened the roof and got set up, the clouds rushed in.
Such is life when you can't get out often enough... you forget a whole lot!
Anyway, here is a compilation of about 15 photographs taken with a Canon t3i, with an 18mm eyepiece projecting the image on the ccd (camera lens was removed). The seeing was fair, not great and so the detail had to be brought out in post-processing using GIMP.
