Another Rockies Moonset

It's been a while since I've had the chance to photograph the Moon, though opportunities certainly present themselves in the summer, when the skies are clear. Tonight, I did not have my camera once again, but I couldn't not photograph a scene like this.

Out came my smartphone, and I snapped a few images that appeared decent on screen. Upon closer inspection, the grain in the images exceeded that of what my Pentax DSLR would give on an automatic setting and without a tripod. This means that my smartphone defaults to a very high ISO when shooting under low-light conditions like those of a sunset.

Lesson learned!
