A Quick Post of the Moon
Night Time Photography
I hunted for my 70-210mm lens, the biggest one I have and it is an antique almost. It is said for a crop frame camera, to photograph the moon a 300mm would be the best. My canon 550D has multiplication factor at x 1.6 for my sensor, which gives around 330mm overall magnification. The final image had rather a large crop to get a meaningful picture.
The moon was orange, my partner said to me that he was concerned it is the sign of a frost or a snow fall. Excited after much of search, for the lens as I hardly ever use it. I put my camera on a tripod in the garden; set my aperture at 5.6, shutter at 1/320s, ISO set at 800. Auto-focussed in then switched to manual and used the timer on the camera.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today 🙂
