1. My longest lens only goes to 135mm, so I really can't get close enough to the moon without some serious post processing cropping. I think I really need about 300mm to get something that looks like a moon.
2. I just haven't been really motivated to do nighttime photography this time of year. It's cold out! I am enjoying watching the lessons though, and I'm taking notes so that when it's not dark at 4:00 and mid 30 degrees that maybe I'll get up the motivation to practice some of the lessons!
Here are a couple sorry attempts at shooting the moon the other night. I don't love either of them.
ISO 100 | f/6.3 | 1/15 sec
