Well it was never going to be a close up shot, that’s for sure. But I had to have a go when the moon was supposed to be at its largest apparent size last month on May 6th in Berkeley, California.
The EXIF data tells me that I shot it at ISO 100, f2.5 and 1/800th of a second with no exposure compensation.
So here is the full frame and a crop. In the crop you can see the bushes that obstructed my view and something that was flying by – a bird or a bat, perhaps.
I think the amount of information that is recorded here of the features of the surface of the moon is amazing.
What do you think?
