Re: Share your Astrophotography Photos

This is a shot that I took here in Great Falls Mt. of the Burlington Northern Railroad turntable and of the full Strawberry Moon. This full Strawberry Moon happened on the day of the summer solstice, and it happened to come up in the middle of this turntable. I guess it was the stonehenge that night lol. I used a Canon EOS REBEL T2i with a Canon kit lens 18-55 mm. I shot it  f5.6 @1/2sec  ISO 800 With a -2step. shot on a tripod .  I used corel paint shop to bring down the moon a little. The moon was still a little bright.  I shot about 20 shots and bracketing to get one that work.  And I had a very short window to do it. The moon did not stay there for long. Strawberry Moon

That image of the moon was cropped, which does not improve resolution.  Here's the original of the photo taken just before, without any processing, not even for White Balance.

 

CT7D2016_10_150025.jpg'

Notice how the camera tries to capture the Moon as a shade of grey.  WB balance in the camera had been set to Auto.  The image was captured as a RAW file, CR2 

 

The Moon is in direct sunlight.  Howver, the sunlight that reaches the Earth's surface gets filtered by the Earth's atmosphere.  This image does not show the Moon's true color because of the camera's filtering.

 

Notice how I didn't push the exposure much.  The shot looks a little underexposed, which it is.  It is easy to saturate the shot.  Taking a photo of the Moon's craters and details is akin to taking a photo of the dust on a lit light bulb.  It is all too easy to get a big bright blob.

Re: Share your Astrophotography Photos

Yes, well explained, thank you for your generous consideration. Smiley Happy I am mainly interested in researching zoom powers in order to take images of what looks like someone holding the Moon on their shoulders, in their hands or bouncing it like a ball. lol I only have a 55-250mm and it's just not quite long enough. Smiley Sad Thanks again.
