Jannefoo, I really like those stacked shots of yours. You must be living at a very high latitude for the moon to be taking such a flat trajectory. Here at present it sinks almost vertically. (41 S)

63.something N. I remember couple of years back when the Moon would just touch the southern point of horizon and disappear a minute later below the horizon (leftmost image). Now the lowest point has risen to around ten degrees due to nutation.

Sadly the situation of the first image won't happen again until the 2020s.

For a 75-300 this looks better than I would have thought you would have gotten!

I'm quite happy with how it came out but any more cropping would noticeably drop the quality.

Charlie: I love the detail of your moon but please don't mind and let me be frank with you and many other friends here and say "NO".
I really don't like the color of moon as shown in last few posts though images are otherwise nice. This includes jaundiced moon of cmosman and violet pincky moons of yours. The real, usual "Big Blue Marble" is anything but colorful. A B&W conversion is successful in most cases even to remove lens' aberrations including CA. Then if you like it very colorful, to my taste the color Inspector shows few post above is the most colorful moon should rightly be. Of course in a special contex one can paint moon anyway likes to fit the situation and story but IMHO this should not be the norm. Well I hope no one minds here from my statement and this solely reflects my opinion that could well be wrong.

Here is moon detail from early this morning, Waning Moon in the eyes of EOS-M:

I'm not quite following your critique on the moon colors. Too blue? should only be B&W? Shouldnt be as yellow?

Usually, the moon is just a solid color depending on how high/low it is, and that's due to the atmostphere rather than the moon. My image editing is on, you're welcome to post what you interpret are the correct colors and why. I'm just trying to understand here, I'm new to moon photography.

Charlie,

I am with you in that I do not quite understand what samsen is saying.

His photo does have color, albeit mostly grey but to me that looks good on the moon.

Samsen,

You correctly spelled Inspector

You are correct that the horizon changes the color of the rising moon , that's not a factor . The fact that after the moon is up high and out of the horizon the moon does not have false colors such as Charlie has produced . That is caused from editing and lens factors such as CA (Chromatic Aberration) . If you really want to see the true color of the moon then look at it in a scope that is capable to make it FOV full so you can see it up close . It will be bright as to no colors at all but if you use a moon filter it will reduce the glare and brightness and you will see more what Samsen is talking about . That is why mainly it's most acceptable to either remove all color artifacts or switch to B&W mode . It makes the moon more acceptable to the human eye .
