2. Yes.

If the sky is clear go look. Really beautiful. And take some shots.
(wishing I had a nice long lens).

8. Agreed

That and my work schedule often does not allow. To bed by 7pm is disruptive to parts of life.

9. Retired. I used to get paid to go out in such weather. I don't do it for free.

11. Two Jovian moons visible in this image, not dust like I saw in a later image.

12. Cool.

Not bad for a shot from the front yard with my 200mm kit lens, I guess. I should take better advantage of the unreal starry skies here and practice (learn) more night photography.

14. I just got a little lucky.

I wasn't shooting manually. The moon was so high it was really awkward. I was trying to use my tripod, but I'm too tall. I ended up walking out to the street and bracing myself against the very frosty roof of my Jeep.

I'll have to play around with it a lot more. In the summer.

15. I try not to extend my tripod to prevent any shake. I also turn off anti-shake.

I set my timer to 2 or 10 seconds depending on how cold it is.


Winter has clearer air, but you have to allow your lenses to acclimate. I learned that from my big tele. It took a few minutes for the heat to dissipate. You can see the waves.

16. What kind of scope do you have?

I've got an 8" Celestron, and I can't get anything near this type of detail. The moon looks like this through mine...I've been able to pull in Jupiter and Saturn but like I said, not with this kind of clarity.
