I have never taken a photo of the moon that i have been satisfied with. I don't know if its my lens, my tripod, just always having shitty atmospheric conditions in DFW, or what. Always pisses me off.

This is the best one i got tonight. Canon 7dmkII with the Canon EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM mounted. taken at 300mm f/8 ISO 1600 with a pretty heavy crop.

First the obvious. 300mm is not that great for a decent moon shot when it Is high. I stacked two 2x TC's to get my bucket list moon shot with my 300 several years ago. I had to work very hard to get over the IQ loss in PP. You don't need 1200 but 300 is a tad short.

What was your shutter speed and were you shooting in live view or normal? Did you use mirror lock up if shooting normal? You have some movement which you can see in the stars on the right. They are elongated. Next chance try it again, put it in live view at max magnification and you will be surprised how much vibration there is. Any heavy cropping will show the imperfections more.

Shutter speed was 1.6sec, and I was shooting in live view with max magnification, manually focusing,and a remote shutter release.

Edit: I will admit I have a woefully light, and inexpensive tripod. It didn't seem particularly breezy, last night but maybe that is another potential culprit.

You can see the moon moving in your veiwfinder and you have vibration. I have a pretty sturdy tripod and I only have to lightly tap the leg with my finger. When in LV at max magnification it looks like someone is shaking the moon around. Try it. Next time try mirror lock up with a remote shutter release. It can be tethered or witless. Press once to open the mirror. Wait a few seconds for everything to settle down and then press again. LV will do the same.

That blood moon is very dark so it had it's challenges. At f8 I had to shoot with a very high ISO. Like I said you can see the moon move in the viewfinder. I'm not sure if those stars on the right were trails from the shutter speed or vibration but either is not good unless you are shooting star trails and using very slow shutter speeds.

Nice. It sure was fun watching at the lake. Clear and dead silence except some neighbours,low battery alarm chirping every 30 seconds. When it went red even the resident Barred stepped hooting which is very rare.

Nice!

Interesting, it wasn't very red here in upstate NY. Fortunately, it was clear :(

I was goofing around re-testing my 1.4 II MFA settings shooting the tamest blue jays I have seen. New crop because they were small.

What to do?

Got a decent one last night of the Blood Moon. I know it is a touch on the noisy side, but I had to sacrifice something to get the settings I needed.

And here is one where I did not have to sacrifice ISO to get the shot. I like the look of this much better.

This is a first for me. After a few days I could go on the deck (the feeder was in the yard) move the camera around and they just ignored me. There were 3. Now I know how Pondrader feels.
