A heads up for a possible photo opp.

The Full Moon tonight (Weds 8/5) and the still almost full moon tomorrow (Thurs 8/6) will be near the bright planet Jupiter.

Tonight Jupiter will be to the left of the Moon and Tomorrow it will be to the right and closer

Jupiter is a very bright "Star", the brightest in the sky right now (Until Venus rises just before dawn) you can't miss it

Best time to photograph is between 10pm and 2am

Only problem, it was clear just before it got dark and now there are clouds. I believe we are looking at spotty clouds tonight and tomorrow night pretty much across the whole Northeast, so it might not be visible at all places and times.


Though I believe it will be tricky, taking a picture of the very bright full and a much dimmer "star" next to it.

I took this near the end of last month, a little after Venus and Jupiter did that conjunction thing. Even though I had a tripod, it was still a little shaky, so I was disappointed with the result.

Nobody else got the 'supermoon'?

I had just received my new camera, my first slr (Canon 60D) and I hadnt even received all the lenses I ordered yet but I did get the canon 70-300IS so thought I'd try and get the moon. I didnt even know where the controls on the camera were lol, but I fumbled around until I figured out at least how to get it into AV and adjust the basics.

My old cheap tripods wont hold this sucker up either so I was shooting handheld.

Came out OK but due to my unfamiliarity with the controls I am sure it could have been tweaked much better!



I meant to take some more pics sat or sun after I learned the camera but clouds foiled every attempt (I think that one was from last friday).

Nice! I was wondering why there hasn't been many super moon pics. Trying to schedule some ADK treks during full moon dates.

Night Sky Time Lapse

I prefer when there is no moon in the sky

Well I finally tried my hand at shooting some star trails, inspired by KurtVon's pics. I tried a couple different methods and these ones came out best. Not to bad for my first night trying this I hope...
