Super Moonset

My third in a series of images of the Super Moon. The setting of the perigee Moon just an hour before full was spectacular. The appearance of the moon changes from hour to hour. Different locals, lenses, and telescopes provide different opportunities for images. I've used a shorter lens to get more context and colors from the sky and trees with the setting moon in this image.

Image above taken with a Sony a6300 with a vintage Vivitar 135 mm lens and exposed for 1/8 sec at ISO 100 and f8. Just a minor exposure adjustment in Photoshop to bring out the tree.

I switched to the 200 mm lens right before the Moon disappeared below the horizon. Sony a6300 with vintage Vivitar 200 mm lens taken at f8 for 1/3 sec at ISO 100.


These images are included in my note on Moon photography - a dozen ways to shoot the Moon
