Default Supermoon

Just a heads up. This full moon, Saturday May 5th, is a supermoon. It will be the biggest full moon of 2012, and will be officially full at 11:35pm EDT. Let's hope the weather is good wherever you are. Happy moon-shooting!

Saly, that was taken with my FZ40, no teleconverter and if I remember correctly that was in Shutter Priority mode using the digital zoom. I hate using the digi zoom but I used a tripod and was able to clean it up a bit in PP. I also used the ten second timer to avoid any shaking.
