Orange Moon

Long after today's lunar eclipse over Europe, our California wildfires produced this marvelous smoky orange moonrise.


Shot from the driveway in shorts and a T-shirt, my favorite way to do night sky photography, I used the behemoth A*600mm f/5.6 lens plus 1.4x TC on the 645Z. With virtually no wind, I used a slower shutter speed than my usual in order to mitigate the high ISO required.


Mars was just out of frame...maybe next time, Mars.


Thanks for looking!
