This Saturday 2pm in Oakland . . . who knows I might even be there :)
We went on a moonlight tour of Point Sur, the lighthouse located at Big Sur, California. It is a light house "station" not just a lighthouse. This designation is due to the fact that it has almost all of its original building and facilities that were required to run a lighthouse back when oil was used to fuel the lights.
Probably not the best conditions for a comparison due to the thin haze blowing by the moon and distorting it variably minute by minute but I wanted to see the differences. This was also shot during the last 4-5 minutes of the partial eclipse as it went completely dark. I should have put on my telephoto lens sooner to get a better shot.
(It was just too hazy to get a good shot by the time I changed lenses)
Both on the Nikon D800E
One image is shot at 25600 ISO 300mm F/5.6 1/2 second
the other is 5000 ISO 300mm f/5.6 1 second
I shot the 25600 ISO shot first when it was brighter and the 5000 ISO shot a minute later when it was darker hence the weird metrics on the shot duration.
