Daytime Moon & Plane

By GarethH
I was setting my telescope up just before
christmas and as I was just about to fix my camera on the back,I could see the plane fast approaching.
Hence not a very sharp shot but I thought I`d give it a go anyway

Next full mooon is the 28th Jan. Well spotted and timed. Would be even better if left hand of blue sky was cropped significantly putting plane in lower left hand corner.

I wish i had a telescope. Who cares if its blurred, your next one will be perfect. Just crank up the ISO to get a faster shutter speed and keep the f stop to at least 5.6, preferably f8 to minimise chromatic aberration cos sharpness nearly always supercedes digital noise. Noise can be addressed up to a point, a blurred image cannot.

I dream of getting this sort of shot!! Agree with the cropping from Graham, but a perfect capture.
