Thank you very much Susan, also thank you husband for me. I take it that you are ware that the moon only appears to be larger as it rises. It’s actually an optical illusion, known as polar Ponzo Illusion. This illusion occurs when our brians perceive the sun or the moon on the horizon as being larger than when it is directly overhead. I think I may have said before, you don’t need expensive lenses to shoot the moon. I don’t have any zoom lenses, as my camera does not support them. My camera settings are. F4.5, ISO 100, SS 1,300, exposure compensation -2/3 metering spot. zoom 600mm, aspect ration 16.9, timer 5 seconds. I play with other setting, but those are my standard moon settings. Other settings I will adjust will be sharpness, noise contrast and saturation.
