The Moon

Probably should have rented a nifty zoom lens for the moon last night. The image you see is as good as it gets. It was taken handheld from my backyard. I was actually pretty amazed at how bright it was. Had to really stop down my camera (which basically means I had to darken everything). The shadows it cast on my backyard were also surprisingly visible – could have been the annoying flood lights from my neighbors.

For any photography nerds out there, here were my settings: ISO 64, 200mm, f/5, 1/500. I shot this on the D810 and cropped the sensor (DX) to give me a little more zoom.

UPDATE: So I ended up renting the zoom lens, and I’m glad I did. Snagged this little guy last night.
