Full Moon at Perigee

Newer Older

Sweet. Got my 400mm f/5.6 ED AIS just in time for tonight's moon!

It was a bit tricky, because (a) I know nothing about astrophotography, and (b) there was plenty of cloud and fog and such. Nonetheless, I'm pretty pleased, all considered.

    Woah! This is excellent. Love the detail & composition.

    Seen in a discussion of the group "Nikon D40/x and D60 Club" (?)

    Awesome! Did you make this photo with a Nikon D40x? Which configuration did you use?

  5. kukkurovaca 59 months ago | reply

    No, a D40 w/a 400mm f/5.6 ED AIs and a 1.4x TC.

    what did you do to get the right exposure?
    AIs lenses don't meter on D40, right?

    Just shot, chimped, checked the histogram, and re-shot. I had to keep re-adjusting because as the clouds passed by, there was substantial variability in correct exposure...
