Moon take 2

Full Moon

With the moon being almost full (and if you're in America, you can see a partial lunar eclipse tomorrow morning), I thought I'd have another go at some moon shots, this time at 8 megapix instead of 5 which is my default.

I didn't bother taking my tripod down, it's a piece of crap anyway (someone wanna get me a decent one for my birthday?), and with high shutter speeds it wasn't even necessary.

This one is 1/400th, f/2.8, 64 ISO, same as yesterday actually, just at 8 megapix, full zoom (200mm equivalent), and a fuller moon.

Oh as I was going to bed this morning I noticed the light was out in the neighbour's flat next door. Which could mean one of several things..
1) The dude is back home and using the flat as per normal
2) The light bulb finally burnt out
3) The police came by, and whatever the outcome, the light was turned off. I'm guessing that since there isn't any sign of an industrial cleanup, there wasn't anyone in there. Will call them next week and see if they found out anything.

It's mind-boggling that you can get such a beautiful shot without a tripod. Well done!

Tell me about it! I was just as stunned. Night shots are supposed to need long exposures right? :) But I guess you're taking a photo of a massive mirror of the sun, or a great big light bulb, which is actually a very bright thing to try and capture.

It's like taking photos of snow. 1/400th is NOT a time exposure!! You need the tripod for anything under 1/30th.
