Quick Early August Moon, 2022

August 2nd, 2022, 8:32 p.m. local time

The temperature was about 80 degrees Fahrenheit minutes after Sunset.  Warm, but pleasant.  And perhaps most important for my topic, the sky was near perfectly clear.

Tonight’s Lunar image was from a wide-angle view.  I did have shots even wider, with more trees, but I chose the cropping above for balance, acknowledging you are not getting the full perspective of the surrounding landscape and horizon.

Next Moon opportunity will be with a telescope again, for a much closer look, with more clarity.

Equipment Used:

  1. Canon EOS Rebel SL3 on tripod
  2. Sigma wide field lens, 50mm focal length
  3. f/5
  4. 1/100 sec exposure
  5. ISO 100
  6. Minor touchups in PaintShop Pro and AfterShot Pro


I write frequently about astrophotography, technology advice, and my other interests like science fiction. I have over 30 years of experience in computer programming, information technology, and project management.
