not sure exactly where this one would fit in but since it is nature I think it fits well here.

Shot this earlier tonight.
I thought it was a good effort considering it was cloudy and its pretty breezy out there too.

Shot at 800mm @ f/22

All C&C is welcome :)

That's a nice moon shot. I've taken a full moon shot (@ only 300mm) and it's tougher than I thought it would be.

Will you print it?

Given the size/circumference of the moon, can anyone take a stab at the size of that lower off-center impact crater? Velocity of the meteor? And possibly what it could do to Earth if it impacted here?

That looks like one hellofaf#$%ing huge-ass crater.

That is a nice shot. Was looking at an earlier image if the moon where I think that same impact crater was more left center.

That crater is Copernicus. Caused by 'low velocity' (only 10km per second) impact of an asteroid an estimated 7km in diameter.

Thanks. :) Getting the exposure right is just as difficult as getting the focus right!
Might print it when I move into my new flat :) Didn't actually think of it! ;)

Thanks. :) I have noticed that too! I imagine its down to what time of the year and where on earth you are when taking the picture.
