Default Supermoon over Germany

A shot from the so called "supermoon" over Germany, with a lot of PP in GIMP.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermoon

Any suggestions are welcome.

Cheers,

Stefan

Nice effort, Stefan. I see a blue border on the top side and a yellow border on the bottom side of the moon - chromatic aberration? Did you have an add-on lens? And, I don't see Germany, which would have been nice.

What does "super moon" mean?

The supermoon is a rare phenomenon (scientists call it the lunar perigee-syzgy) makes the moon look unusually big and bright. It occurs when the moon is at its fullest, at almost exactly the same time as it makes its closest approach to the Earth. The full moon will appear around 2 per cent bigger than last month's. At its closest approach, or lunar perigee, the moon is around 30,000km nearer to Earth than its average distance of 385,000k. This is the best opportunity in 18 years.

Nice job. Thanks for the wiki link.

If this is the best opportunity in 18 years, I'd better get out there and get some more shots.

Makes sense that such proximity could be associated with earthquakes. The influence of the moon on the earth is enormous anyway.

Just anew shot from this evening.

Is it better than the first one?

I have the impression, that the moon shot without TCON-17 has better IQ than the two first two shots with TCON-17?

Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Stefan
