Took the Moon with my G9
Aug 29, 2012

Tonight (August 29th) we had almost fullmoon; unfortunately with a corona. I took a few shots with my G9 plus the Canon tele-converter lens (f=400 mm).

The sample pictures below were made at ISO 80, underexposure of -2.0 EV, spotmetering at 1/200 and 1:4,8. One shows the original photo, the other one shows a 6.7x crop after manually adjusting the tone mapping and moderate sharpening.

I also tried Photomatix; the results then were dramatic but did not deliver the real impression. So, I do not show them here.

The haze did not help with a clear and spot-on sharp picture

  • I do hope for tomorrow night. Can't wait.

Regards, Hermann

Canon PowerShot G9
