Learning Lunar Photography

Supermoon chaser on a budget.  Wish I could afford better equipment, even my tripod acted up on this adventure.  Tried to get  a better lens for my Canon and discovered that a better lens for that camera still wouldn’t be as good as the Panasonic mirrorless.   I have to save up for that dream camera for Greece next year.

But you make do with what you have and try to learn, then the weather and the clouds decide to challenge me.  Oh well, for this early (4 am) moon chasing adventure and the few night last night’s practice tries this is what I came up with for my super moon effort.  Hey I have one more night, right?

    1. The moon by itself , the really clear one in my front yard as it was rising. The one peeking behind the mountain, this morning , a few miles down the road as it was setting. It settled into a cloud bank over the mountains. Thanks for cheering me up.
