Not to be outdone by my friends Margie and Roger, I figured I needed to post some of my full moon pictures.
The zoom lens on this Canon SX 30 IS, is really powerful, and you can get some amazing shots…if you can just stop your heart from beating a minute so that you don’t miss the moon.
I need to get out my tripod and see if that will help me to hold the camera a little steadier. I took a few shots where I missed the moon altogether.
I tried several different settings and adjusted the exposure a little, but they came out pretty much the same for the most part. I think the moon still has a little to go before it is 100 % full.
I loved my old Olympus camera and I used to try to take moon shots, but never was able to get anything quite like these.
I need to scan and post some pictures my Dad had from his Air Force days. He had the REAL close ups :) Maybe I’ll scan them tomorrow.
