Full

I mentioned last night that it was almost a full moon, and sure enough, tonight was the full moon. I set up the camera and shot it with all of my tricks, and this is the best I could get. I even used the time-delay feature on my camera, so that after I pressed the shutter button, I could let go of the camera and it would have time to stop wobbling before it snapped the picture. Anyhow, I'm pretty pleased with the result. Now I just have to wait for that eclipse in August...

and just a few hundred years ago, world-reknown astronomers would have given their eye-teeth (whatever eye-teeth are) for a shot like this photograph!
Thank you for sharing your photography (as well as the Hi-Fi series...)!!!

eye teeth are the pointy ones at the "corners" ........ the ones popular with vampires, right?

An awesome moon, Ernie! One to howl at, for sure! I've never been able to snap one so well.
