Half a Moon Is Better Than None

Another experiment with the gear updates, trying to see what combinations work in different situations. Always surprises me how much less light there is than with a full moon. Lots of adjustments to be made to get the exposure right.

Also tried some brackets... they didn't go well.. lol

Lunar Experiments

I was experimenting with some new lens options last night, along with my first time taking moon shots with my new to me body. Not officially the full moon, but pretty close. I'd say I'm happy with the results.

Going to try and do some more over the coming week. I think a partial moon is actually much more interesting, and tends to highlight the craters better.

Sunflowers and Stars
Oh, and a meteor too..

Proving once again, not everything goes quite the way you were thinking... and for some things, there are no easy second chances... lol

Last year, I had two cameras, about 500 frames and a single meteor. A little over 500 frames this year from three cameras. Of course, the one actual decent meteor was with the lowest end camera.. lol It's a HUGE sky and those pesky meteors just do as they please.

This year I was trying for something interesting in the foreground, and the sunflowers seemed to create an interesting effect. We'll see if they play out better with images from the other two cameras.

Far from the best image, but it's the only meteor I have to show from last nights efforts. I got a LOT of satellites though! :D lol

Really needs to be viewed large to see any details.

Christmas Full Moon 2015

For sure not the best shot ever, but best with current conditions. Got fogged out last night, and it was rolling in again the first chance I had tonight. Can't even see it now...

I'll see if I can do better in 19 years when there is the next full moon on Christmas.. lol

Star Trails Fail...
Or.. Making Lemonade!

So last week I went out hoping to do some star trails with the new moon, so a pretty dark night. I realized what may be a cool local spot under a train trestle. Problem was.. the clouds moved in much faster than expected...

I tried a couple longer exposures, but the clouds were moving so fast, it was just a blanket of white... lol So, in an effort to get something out of the evening, some long-ish exposure with blurring clouds and a few stars under the trestle.

Lunar Eclipse 27 September 2015 v1

Well.. Due to clouds, I missed prime time for this eclipse, but as the moon transitioned out of the eclipse, the skies were clear and I was able to get some shots.

Posting these intentionally in reverse order so in my Moon and Stars collection, they will be in the right order from top to bottom. May take me a day or two to finish these up... Each images is a five shot bracketed HDR, so a bit to do for each stage.

Starting with the return to a full moon, or pretty close. The park was closing and I had to pack up... lol
