There is an incredible super moon out tonight. Have you seen it? Here it is from my yard in central Alabama at about 9:45 tonight.
How awesome is that?
I was able to take this amazing picture with my Canon 60D the stock zoom lens that came with the camera. My friend Jamie shared this great tutorial on shooting the moon on facebook earlier tonight. I decided to give it a whirl. I’m so glad I did.
I used my tripod and my new rocketfish wireless remote control. This website gave me the info I needed to get a good shot, but here are the details that I used to get this photo.
250mm focal length
I shot it with manual focus and adjusted the diopter a little to get it as close to clear as possible.
Two other things that made this photo easier to get were a stool for me to sit on while I got my settings right and some rewetting drops for my dry eyes and contacts. Oh, and a little bug spray wouldn’t have been a bad idea.
Get out there and take a peek at this beautiful moon tonight if you happen to catch it in time!
