Moon set Yanchep - South

Single image: Samyang 14mm at f2.8

I took multiple intending to stack, but prefer the single for clarity in the water.

This is a Bortle 3 area, and sometimes the light pollution assists with definition: The Southern Cross is very clear, as are the pointers and coalsack nebula.

This is taken about 15 minutes before the very skinny slither of moon was to set.

The area is lit with Sodium lights, hence the orange hue in the water. The LMC is just in shot, top left corner, and Triangularum Australis to the left of the Crux
