Your best bet would be to plan on a moon that rises an hour or two before sunrise and shoot to the east, or a moon that sets an hour or two after sunset, and shoot to the west.

I'm trying for the shooting-west moon at sunset; the trouble with sunrises is that they always seem to take place early in the morning ..  With sunsets, you can bring a beach chair and a beer cooler along with the camera and pray for a clear horizon ... Much better!

I guess I need to fire up one of those "predictor models" and see what I can plan ....

Appreciate the response: thanks ...
