Experiment to see if I could get a decent shot of the moon using only a zoom lens. Nikon D7000 camera, handheld (no tripod), Tamron 70-300mm lens set to 300mm, ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/400 second exposure.
Follow up to my earlier post “Supermoon (almost)”. My attempt to capture the full 2011 “supermoon”. Taken with a Nikon D7000, 18-200mm lens, and a tripod. Settings were ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/320 second exposure.
Saturday is the night of the “supermoon” – a full moon when it is closest to earth. Has not happened for 18 years. (Thanks to Sean for the clarification!) I don’t know if we will have clear skies on Saturday so I decided to get a shot of the almost-supermoon tonight. This was done with my Nikon D7000 camera, a tripod, and an 18-200mm zoom lens. Settings were ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/125 second exposure.
