Was just reading about tomorrows Blue Moon and it seems as though CA. may be in for a treat.

I have a 70-200,, f/2.8 ver. II which I recently acquired. My daughter is using my Canon 70-300mm L and lives about 20 minutes away. Is it worth my while to drive and pick the 300mm lens or do you think I will be fine with the 70-200mm 2.8?

I had tripods too.

Thank You.

the event is tonight (tomorrow early AM)

the moon is already way above the horizon over here.

300 will probably help, depends on your goals with the shot.
