Moon

 
August 12, 2014   Moon, Astronomy, 70-300vr
 
 

The weekend's clear night skies provided a good view of the moon. Watching the moon zoomed-in in live-view brings home the fact that it's a moving object, so a fast shutter helps. Both were taken on a tripod with a 70-300 vr, spot metering, and both, of course, were heavily cropped in post processing.

The half moon was shot at 220 mm, f/7.1, 1/320 sec; the full moon at 240 mm, f/7.1, and 1/1600 sec.
