Moon Over Albuquerque

Almost Full Moon

I took this moon shot on May 27. I was in my drivaway at the time and I used my 200 mm lens with a 1.4x tele converter. I also used my tripod and a remote so I did not have to touch the camera at all once the shot was set up. Check back tomorrow for a picture of the full moon.

    wow!! this is a perfect shot!! it could be a cover for national geographic magazine!! congratulations 😉

  2. Remote ? You must have a Canon. Mine has a remote. Maybe they all do but I don’t know for sure.

    I wonder how you like the 200mm lens witha 1.4 tele converter. Did you get it from Amazon? And the name is Sigma or something else? I am interested to see how well something like that works.


    Today, I published a nest photograph and some details about its construction; and a link to some dead birds with an explanation. Oh; and thanks for coming to my blog and leaving comments. I do appreciate it.

    Dsole, thank you for the compliments.

    Abraham, I actually use an Olympus E-500 and I love it. The 200mm lens is an Olympus Zuiko as is the teleconverter. I love working with them both but I find I do need to use the tripod and either the remote or a 2 second delay once I push the shutter for a really clear shot. It is just too heavy for me to hold steady.

    Thank you, Chad.

    Hi Annie, No I actually got to shoot the full moon on May 31. I will be posting it tomorrow! Thank you for the compliments.

    Thank you all for visiting Albuquerque Daily Photo.
