Moon with NEX7 + Canon 500L + 2X Extender
Nov 13, 2013

Tonight the moon looked good so I had another go at shooting it. Used my NEX7 because I am impressed with the Sony sensor. It resolves a lot of detail.

Manual focus using magnified view. f/8, 1/500sec, ISO100, minus 2 exposure compensation. I kept having to pull the lens into place because the moon soon moves out of the centre area.

I edited it in Photoshop then converted to B&W and pushed the individual colour sliders back and forth to see if they made a difference in the detail. Had to up the contrast heaps. No noise reduction because it removes some detail.
