November Moon


November 29, 2015

Last week I noticed a setting full moon.moon_0004

All photos taken on the same setting except

for the aperture.

This one is at f/6.3


This one at f/22.

But I do confess to lightening it a bit.moon_0004a8

I decided to add this version, number 1 cropped,

as the crater, on the horizon,

at 10 o’clock fascinates me.

Who would ever have thought the we could take

such detailed photographs of the moon

with consumer equipment.

Technical Stuff.

Camera: Nikon D90

Lens: Sigma 50-500mm

Focal length: 500mm

Shutter Speed: 1/500

Aperture: f/6.3 & f/22

ISO: 400

And the camera was hand held…probably with

the aid of a door or verandah post.
