The No-More-Excuses Moon

The No-More-Excuses Moon

It’s mostly clear, and just a tad below freezing.  It’s the middle of the weekend.  The latter-stage Moon is high above.  Do I have any excuses not to take a stab at photographing it?

No chill wind, no snow falling, and a mostly clear sky.  I knew I had to give this one a try!

The only downside was a slight haze over the Moon, but I believe I filtered it out in post-processing.  This was taken with my DSLR camera on tripod.

Image settings for reference:

  • f/5.6
  • 1/250 sec exposure
  • ISO 100
  • 300mm lens


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.
