Another shot of the moon, again using my 500mm lens on the new, sturdier tripod my wife bought for me last Xmas:
Woke up before sunrise this morning and noticed Jupiter high overhead while stepping outside to check the temperature. Got out the tripod, camera and 500mm lens and managed to get the following picture:
From left-to-right, the moons you can see are Ganymede, Callisto, Io and a bit of Europa adjacent to an over-exposed Jupiter.
For once we had clear skies, and when I looked outside a full moon was directly overhead. Grabbed my “Bigma” lens (a 500mm Sigma with a four/thirds mount) and went outside. I played around with aperture settings and with focus, and out of about 40+ shots this was the one that was the most crisp. Some contrast added using PhotoShop Lightroom in order to bring out more detail.
Shot with my 200mm lens about an hour before the sun came up:
