So into the backyard with the 70-200mm lens and a 2 x tele convert , tripod and remote and were good to go.


Now trick here is to under expose you shot as the camera will make the moon bright to compensate for the dark background, so try spot metering if you in an auto mode, (aperture priority, P mode, etc) and dial in - 2 to 3 stops and see what you get. If it's still too bright try -4 to 5. I went into manual and settled on 1/60 sec at f/22 ISO 100, this was the best exposure and nice and sharp, I did try similar exopsures but was happy with these results.

A bit of a tickle up in Photoshop and looks pretty good (from a distance!)

I did do a similar shot infact on the 13 sept 2011 with the same set up this time round I wanted to test the sharpness using the same exposures but stopping down the aperature to see which gave me the sharpest results. I really couldn't see too much difference between f10 - f22, but on the otherside of these apertures there was a noticable difference.
