Share your experiences with moon/lunar photography

May 11, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

What is your experience with lunar photography? I'd love to hear. Please share below! Here's how my recent try went...

Using a budget tripod, and a stabilized 18-200mm zoom lens, I tried my hand at capturing the Lunar Perigee on May 7, 2012.

I headed down to a park in southeast Toronto near the waterfront, just before 11:35 PM Eastern time, when it was set to peak. I placed my Nikon D7000 on a tripod and set it to mirror lock-up mode, to reduce shake during image capture. My camera was set to ISO 100, F11 and 1/125.

Below is my best shot, cropped and slightly adjusted in LIghtroom.

And here is my original uncropped image, for the sake of full disclosure...

I'm interested in what you do when capturing the moon. Please share your experiences and links if relevant!
