Photographing the moon

I was walking home from running an errand and thought the moon looked especially beautiful this evening.    Photographing the moon is something that I have always wanted to know how to do but never gave it a real try and tonight seemed like a good night to start so I ran in and grabbed my gear.    I have to say while not perfect I am very pleased with my first attempt.    I took several others but ultimately went with the first shot.

It was much easier than I expected.     Here are the settings I used:

200mm f2.8 with a 1.4 teleconverter

ISO 400

1/350 sec

f 4.0

I used a tripod and remote shutter release.   Next time I will try it with mirror lock as well as I think I can get a sharper edge on the moon.

There will be a full moon next week so I will practice a few more times to work on my moon photography.     If you haven't tried before give it a try.   I think I found another new aspect of photography that I will end up really enjoying.    Hope you will too.
