Super Moon

I was afraid I would not be able to shoot the full moon on the 22nd, so the night before, I took some shots. Though not full, I like the 'almost' super moon better. You can see the craters at the bottom in fair detail. I suppose one can only expect just so much out of a camera at the price we paid. It is not a telescope and there is so much pollution in the air. (the camera moves with my pulse and breathing, too - my tripod had to be my knees - not an excuse - just the reason) I think many of us 'night people' have an attraction to the moon. We (the dogs, cat and I) spent quite some time enjoying the evening and night on the front porch, bug-less for a change.

  4. I think they are wonderful! You need a tripod, they are so worth the money and they are not so expensive.
    I'm saving for a longer lense so I can get better close ups. That way we don't have to wait for a supermoon.

  5. These are wonderful shots! I'm glad I took my pictures on the 21st because we did have clouds the 22nd.
