I couldn't find a "shoot the moon" thread. There seems to be one for every person that's done it. Figured I'd try and get a common place for it.

It's a blue moon tonight, shoot it!

Here are a couple of my attempts. I shot it with two different lenses. Both shots are 100% crops with zero post processing. Tripod and 2 second timer used. (I don't have a remote.) Exif intact. Shot from San Diego, Ca.

1: Shot with Canon 28-135 EF f/3.5-5.6 IS Kit Lens that came with the 7D.

2: Shot with Canon 70-210 EF f/4 Lens

My first successful moon shoot. :)

What's in yourexternal link sippy cup?
My stuff:
A low-light hi-def rapid shooter, a sniper, a couple old school 35s.

Some L, a nifty f/1.4, a kit IS, some slow EFs and two crappy Qs.

Canon EOS 50D
f 5.6
1/800 sec.
ISO-200
300mm

Modified for text and small file size.
