Waiting for a large batch of files to upload at 1:30 AM and realized the skies had cleared...

Something made the sky too bright for any deep sky objects last night, but I caught the culprit red-handed.

Celestron C8 (2000 mm f/10; 6D; ISO 100; 1/30 s). That's the full frame.

That's my first attempt at the moon when it wasn't stuck behind high, thin cloud. I was a bit disappointed by the raw image as it was a lot softer than I'd have hoped. It sharpened up OK though, but it's not up to the standards of some of the shots here. The colour went a bit wonky during the jpeg conversion for posting, taking on a bit of a green cast. Maybe I should have used a cheese filter.

And no; it's not upside down! ;)

Hahaha! It's all about perspective. Good capture, BTW.

Mine from a few days ago. Sharpened, denoised, and cropped.

^^ Good try SC.
Good phase of moon,
good exposure,
You could decenter moon for a different composition,
and all you missed is probably the focus, as I don't see detail of the moon. Is this Tameron at 300 or Sigma at 200? Unsharp lens can contribute to loss of detail too but definitely check with focusing first.

Yeah, I'm having some lens creep trouble with my Tamron 300. I had to hold the lens at 300mm with one hand, while trying to focus and depress the shutter button with the other hand. I'm going to send the lens back for service to tighten it and avoid the creep.

I'll keep trying.

I just put a rubber band right behind the part that moves when zooming. It might creep just a bit at first, but will soon stop and be stable the rest of the night.

Here's a different take on the moon...shot at 24mm with the EF 24-70 2.8. A rather ominous precursor to what was Cyclone Lusi, heading this way as it reduces to a still considerable storm...so we are told!

Thanks for that tip, but since it's still under warranty I'll have them fix it.

Fantastic!

Thank you very much Brenda.

Sunday morning here now and the storm seems to have dissipated a lot...no more than some rain and a lot of moderate strength wind over night!

Went down to Milford beach yesterday, wind was very very strong! We're quite sheltered where we live so didn't even notice there was a cyclone :) very warm cyclone it was too.
