On October 26, 2018 at 6:22 a.m., I stood outside of my house and took this hand-held shot of the moon’s craters with a 300mm lens at 1/500 second, 5.6 Fstop. I remain amazed by the clarity of this photo taken without a tripod. Never been luckier.
Three years ago, using a tripod in my backyard and a 300mm lens on a Nikon5100, I captured the bottom of a full moon. To this date I am amazed by the moon’s craters in this shot.
Went into our backyard about ten minutes before sunset yesterday. Saw the moon. Got my tripod and camera. The line is a telephone wire and the leaves are from the neighbor’s tree. And in the middle, of course, is the moon. Used a 300 mm lens, manual focus, 1/80 sec at 7.1. Peace.
I got a head start last night on Friday’s full moon in California with this shot. Confusing sentence? In some parts of the world the full moon is this Saturday, but where I live, we go full tomorrow, Friday.
