Moon Photography
« on: December 17, 2011, 12:46:58 am »
Noticed a lovely moon streaking across Cheshire this evening from the East. It was large and low and dull.
By the time I grabbed a camera and tripod, it looked more like this:

That's the image full size - quite a heavy crop.

I realise I need a better tripod head for shooting with a 200mm lens and teleconverter.

Is that a music tree on the bottom right?

Can't see the dustbin lids nor the music tree in this take of it:

I took this with an old 200mm Takumar lens, exposure was 1/1600s.

Ooh, that's nice.

Second urge to get telephoto in 24 hours.

Must put the wallet in a secure place.
Getting there...

Does the lunar eclipse feature (?inadvertently) in you Harvest Moon shot? Top left part of moon seems missing though not clouded out...

Yes, his first one clearly shows the eclipse.

He is a git, obv, as I saw the same view driving home but when I got home there was clouds.

He is even more of a git than you think, because not only does he get fabulous pictures but if he bivvied on Ill Bell, the Kirkstone Pass Inn was almost certainly involved at some stage!

Great stuff, Bill!

Yep, as Jaded said.  More clearly seen on this one:


Harvest moon II

I'll settle for semi-advertently;  I wasn't completely sure that's what I was seeing at the time...

Peter, no inns, Kirkstone or otherwise, were involved!  I went up via Garburn Pass from inn-less Kentmere.  More fool me.

Ah, another time, maybe!  Last time I saw Ill Bell was from Red Screes; Kirkstone Inn was certainly involved - and would probably have been better saved for after!
