Photography by Ian Spagnolo, Coffs Harbour & Sawtell
The moon was so bright on Friday. The full moon looked awesome, and even though it’s not one of my greatest moon shots, I still like it. This shot was taken handheld – not on a tripod.
I would love to know the settings you used for this shot. Very nice
Thanks, ISO100, F-stop 6.3, Exposure 1/250 sec. 🙂
Well, you might not think it’s one of your best, but I like it. I usually take my moon photos by holding my camera up to the eyepiece of my telescope and hoping for the best LOL (Sometimes I get a really nice shot but I’m sure you could easily beat me 🙂 )
Thank you, I dont have a telescope so I just crop heavily! 😀 Can’t you get an adaptor for a telescope to mount a camera to it?
Yes but I had a regular point-and-click camera and found if you just played with the settings and hoped for the best, you could still get some pretty cool pics 🙂
You can also get an eyepiece adapter that feeds directly into your computer – basically a webcam – and that allows you to get some amazing astrophotography done. It’s on my to-do list… I just need to get my personal life sorted out first…
