I hiked with Steven to the top of Wildcat Peak to photograph the new moon set. The moon was setting shortly after sunset. One of the nice things about spending time outdoors at night with Steven is that as an amateur astronomer he knows the names of the stars and constellations, and is good at knowing when and where the moon will set.

This image is a Photoshop stacked composite of eleven exposures, taken using a timer at intervals of two minutes, with each exposure at ISO 100, 13 seconds, and f/8.
