Tonight's Moon

By Max_WW
A simple shot, made many times by others, but I'm particularly pleased how it came out. It was shot with a Canon 75 - 300 lens at 300 mm on an EOS 20D.

Hi
I took some the other day but not a full moon.Cracking shot.
i think Luis is trying to say that you have a good composition and a good image and good lighting.I cant work out if this is Spanish or Portugese.Its been a long time since i have used Spanish.But i think i get the gist of the write up.
10/10 for this its greta.

Aaron, sorry to not have included data when uploading, was in a hurry.

I started off in P mode, but the camera was grossly overexposing the image. The moon just looked like a white hazy blur in a black sky. I switched to manual and tried all different apertures at different shutter speeds, using the LCD to work out more or less time required for the exposure. The best result came from:

f/16
1/60 sec
Digital ISO 100

Throughout, the camera was indicating massive underexposure (as it does not have spot metering I presume).

The final image was cropped and sharpened slightly in PS7.

Hope it helps, this was my first trial and error attempt to capture the moon, so hopefully anyone should be able to do similar.

Great Capture!
It's amazing how difficult the Moon is to capture on either film or CCD sensor, well done.

cracking shot, you got the settings about right too. I usually use f8, about 200th sec. The camera wants to overexpose because of all the dark around it, so you did well. Is'nt digital great for experimenting with? lol

Nice work indeed.
