Moon Corona - Second Ring

Moon corona with two rings

This exposure on slide film shows the second ring and has just managed to retain the moon's disc. However it is still rather washed out compared to what I saw.

Two ringed lunar corona

Here the long exposure has recorded the second ring at the expense of the centre, which is completely burnt out. The colour is a bit more realistic than in some of the shorter exposures.

Stack of five 2 second exposures to reduce noise (using Registax).
