The Day After, the 'Blue Moon'

Hi Leenie, I finally got a clear sky and the opportunity to try out your settings. The ones you posted on November 11, 2009 with instructions on how to shoot the full moon! Well I almost used your exact setting, but I had to tweak them ever so slightly to get this shot. Seems it is almost sitting in the same position as when you shot yours. Anyhow, I wanted to thank you for posting that blog as i found it most useful.

My settings were: f/5.6, ISO - 100 at 1/500th of a sec. focal length 300MM
This image is of course cropped into and adjusted even more in photoshop to pick up a little more detail (I darkened it a bit more)

  1. Wooo Hooo! Great shot! I can almost see the U.S. flag and the lunar rover. Glad it worked for you. Our weather has been cloudy, snow and snowing. No view of the blue moon for us. I did go out this a.m. and leave a lot of yak tracks around the neighborhood, though.

  2. Amazing shot!! We didn't get to see the blue moon on New Year's eve, but did see it the evening before as it was rising up over the range to the east of us. It was still light outside, so the moon was against a bright blue sky.
