Default First attempt at Supermoon

Closest it's been in 18 years so I thought I'd give the 70 300 and EC14 a whirl on it. I'll probably try it again early morning. Someday when I'm rich I'll buy a telescope and get into astrophotography, that would be fun.

Gotta be honest, I would rather shoot a quarter moon than full, you get more craters and more dramatic look than with the full ones. Thanks for the comments guys

Hi Eric,

Great shot with good detail and clarity. I do have to agree with you that a quarter moon usually produces a more interesting result.

By the way, How did you ever make out printing your panorama shots using the Red River Paper material we spoke about?

Thanks Zig, I have the paper but with the weather to be honest I haven't found a spot that looks nice enough for a good panorama yet. It's muddy from a ton of rain and dirty looking in most areas here. Being close to the ocean would be nice, always great vistas but here it's pretty boring until spring starts to pop and the winter scenes are gone. That's a lot of ink to waste on a muddy field shot : ) I have several locations in mind as soon as mother nature allows. I still haven't found the right sized frames yet. Everything I find only allows a picture 8 inches wide or so if you use a matte. All the frames seem to be 12 by 36 and you really need about 15 by 36 to do a panorama justice unless you aren't using a matte. If I can't find anything I'll make my own when I'm ready. I have a miter saw and I can cut my own mattes. Do you prefer glass or other materials like lexon/plexiglass ?

Very nice shoot, from here it didn't look any bigger!

Astrophotography is very challenging, I have a 4.5 inch newt the best I can do is the moon, not got a hope with planets or any DSO's
