Moon in First Quarter with Mars

Ah, well. Tried to go after some other deep sky objects, but the Moon is back and light reflected from the lunar surface proved to be too much; adding an unwanted to glow to the background. Since she paired herself up with Mars, I thought this would make a nice image.

Thanks! I'm so ready to go back and work on the deep sky objects; very encouraged by the last two galaxy photos. Just a little time and patience.
