Supermoon

I got a pretty nice shot of the super perigee moon tonight. It was cold and clear and the moon was closest to earth than it has been since since 1993.

 

I used an Olympus 50-200mm lens at 200 mm with a 1.4x teleconverter to give 283 mm (equivalent to 586 mm for a 35 mm camera). Exposure was 1/100s at f/5.6, ISO 100. The camera was on a tripod and I used the RM-1 remote with a 2 sec delay to prevent camera shake.
