Full Lunar Halo in Leo

This was a well defined 22 degree halo with no sign of other halo effects, suggesting well randomised crystal orientations.

Some of the radial streaks near the top are caused by internal reflections in the camera.

Despite the moonlight and cirrus the brighter stars in Leo show up quite well.
