I've just been linked to this Photopills video about shooting the full moon rising behind the Auckland sky tower.
I've already shot this picture, but will be trying again for sure if the weather is right.
At the 4.25 mark on the map the red line is showing where the best spot to shoot from is. I live pretty much on the little number 18 just to the right of it :) Woot, won't have to go far from home to get this one. I'll look at hiring the 100-400 Sony lens for this day now.

Here's a shot I got last year from a little bit closer to town. This was with my 70-200, so I hope to get a better version of it this time :)

I've never managed to get the full moon in one shot with a correct foreground. Either the moon is way too bright or the foreground is completely dark.
I'm curious about how you pulled that off? It's wonderful !

Cheers.

I was shooting with some people who had already taken this shot and they told me the settings.

It is a single shot, but its cropped to a 16:9 ratio in Lightroom to make it a panoramic :)

This is a composite with the trees photographed about an hour earlier when the moon was still up.

Another view from that trip to Bodie. I tried to pull a bit more out of the haze. I'm headed to the blue ridge parkway in a few weeks. I hope to have something from clingmans dome or waterrock knob........ Still a lot to learn with postprocessing

An early morning Milky Way. The glow is not the rising sun but distant city lights.

It's possible to get it in one shot when it's on the horizon, however, you may be better off doing one shot of the moon and one shot at a longer exposure and then work with the layers to blend it

My First Milky Way image in a couple years...going back out tonight if the skies are clearer...Moonrise on the horizon, and Jupiter in the Jaws of the MW.

Do you mean in a processing manner...it was pretty faint due to the moon rising...I pushed it a bit already but didn't want to go too far and have it look fake, with mixed in clouds it gets pretty messy fast.

TR, personally I think its balanced as is. It would look a little odd if the Milkyway stood out further, sort of like a composite.

Nice image by the way.

MW Travis is a challenge, especially living on the east coast like we do.
Great shot regardless of our weather and clouds.

Thanks, I did not want it to look like a composite...so it is how it is...the reality was that it was not as defined as it was about 10 minutes earlier...I liked the subtlety of it, makes the eye look around a bit more. Its not just a picture of the MW...its about a lot of things.

Yeah, the humidity here is killer...all these clouds, rain and crap getting in the way.
