Photographing the moon

(No time to write a new blog post; scrabbled around and found a draft I never completed.)

There’s been a full moon again this week. It was very impressive last night. I didn’t snap it, but here’s a photo from last year when I was first dabbling with my (then new) DSLR camera:

The moon

It requires a bit of fiddling to get good photos of the moon. This page summarises what’s needed: manual mode, of course, ISO 100, aperture f/11, shutter speed 1/125.

My first go isn’t bad, but doesn’t show the detail of professional shots. One of these days I’ll buy myself a better zoom lens and try it again.

    nice shot and useful link (tripod is essential or very steady hands!).
    I noticed the full moon setting on Port Phillip (Bay) on Tuesday. Brilliant orange. I wish I had a camera to capture it too.
