    It looks great. do you have an idea why the coloring different? Taking these photos will be harder as the moon rise later and later, but do try to finish a complete cycle!

    haha, yes, the colour! That's the atmospheric effect. On Wednesday, Feb. 8., just one day after full Moon, I took the image around 10 p.m., and the Moon was really high in the sky. On the next day I went out around the same time, but of course moonrise was about an hour later and the Moon was at a much loer elevation. Then on the 10th, the moon rise after 9:30 p.m., and I had to wait until it was above the roof of the house next door. It was still fairly close to the horizon, perhaps around 20 deg. That's wht it appears golden. Then, on the last image, teh moon had risen around 10:45 p.m. but Iwas watching TV until around midnight, so it was higher in the sky than on the preceding night.

    First that bothered me, but the more I looked at it the more I liked the different colours.
