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.

Moon shots taken last night. The first is a cropped shot of the moon in the Earth's penumbra. The second shot is the un-cropped version of the first. The third shows the moon moving out of the penumbra.

Here is a substitute for the recent blue moon which was not visible through the overcast and frequently-raining skies.

The infamous blood moon taken with the Fuji. Looks pretty similar to the Nikon version.
