la lune

the moon

I have a 300 mm zoom lens.  It is bottom-of-the-range. However my digital camera has a focal length multiplier of 1.6 which means that my zoom lens is effectively 480 mm.  That notwithstanding, to get the clarity in the photo above I had to use a tripod and a cable release shutter to avoid shake. It was zero degrees last night and I discovered that it is not easy to do all of the above with gloves. As a result I nearly gave myself frostbite getting a number of shots of the moon, and Mars. Here’s a sample shot of the moon, which is waning gibbous.
