Crescent Moon

The photo of the crescent moon is handheld at 600 mm, ƒ5.6, 1/200 sec, ISO 320 for those who care. The detail is not bad for hand held. One of these days I’ll dig out a tripod and see if I can get a really clear shot of the moon. The other photos are silly kitty shots.

  1. “The photo of the crescent moon is handheld at 600 mm, ƒ5.6, 1/200 sec, ISO 320 for those who care. ” ..yes. good reference,
    Question does that include the vibration reduction being active ?
    And is the image full frame .. or a crop, what crop size “-) ?

    Image of puck: thanks for the smile 🙂

  2. PS, get yourself a pola or ND filter. I tried exposures without filter, with Tiffen UV filter and the B&W pola filter. The UV filter only slightly improved UV blur but the polafilter really filtered out the disturbing light and exposures with the sky in it become clear and have better contrast. A ND filter would probably do the same .

  3. Wolf, Image is cropped a lot. Vibration control in the body is on (I just checked). I’ll get a polarizing filter and see how that works. I haven’t used a pola in years. The black kitty is Rosencrantz. Puck won’t lay on people’s legs — he is too cool a cat for that.

    • I compared some old moon shots I made a month or so ago and I am impressed by the details on the moon. Lighting is good ( sideways of the craters ) but still your camera and lens have good resolution. Just wondering what camera body you are using for this, a 4/3rd system camera like Olympus PEN ?
