I was just driving home from a movie and noticed how beautiful & full the moon was tonight. So when I got home I took a few quick pics and decided to post. Feel free to comment or add your own moon pics. :0)

Nice shot. I too was hoping to get shots of the full moon tonight, but alas, we are finally getting much needed rain. We've been in a drought all summer so I really can't complain. Wish the rain had come during the Rain Challenge though.

Shot with a Canon D60, 400mm F4L lens and 2X TC (1280 effective MM)

My 'best' was back in May. Too cloudy tonight.

WOW! I'm so embarrassed about mine now!

Well, I still like mine, so there! =Þ

Your's is nice. But did yo notice how small that moon is in the viewfinder? I have 300mm of reach - I can't imagine how nice 800mm would be!

Exposure is not too difficult. Focusing is hell.

I'm not saying I wouldn't love to have that kind of reach, but I'm not discontent, either... That's all...

Technically the full moon is on Friday (tomorrow) night (unless you're in Australia?).
08/19/2005 02:29:57 AM · #13
Well I thought I'd throw mine in.

Hopefull I'll get my adapter, to my telescope, today. That should make for a nice pic.

Can't you simply focus on infinity?

That's what I did... seemed to work ok for me... I just had to be careful not to focus past infinity...

Hard to resist taking a shot at that moon. You're right, it's hard to focus (especially with a manual focus lens).

I got a new lens to shoot the moon with:

(this is actually scaled down)

I rushed this one, the whole thing was shaky. Next time I'll bring some mosquito repellant, so I can have a steady shot.

This is taken through a Celestron powerseeker 127mm reflector.

Practicing with my new camera... manual focus and exposure... 300mm 35mm equiv... sharpened and cropped for my 1024 x 768 wallpaper. In reading the DPC tutorial, it says there should be a icon to insert image or hyperlink, but I don't see the icon :( but here is a link to my DPC posted image...

Click the thumnail button [furthest to the right] and simply type in the image ID number, in this case 219874:
