SX50/Embarrassing Blood Moon Attempt Plus a UFO :)
4 months ago

Well I'm certainly no stranger to awesome moon shots thanks to this awesome camera but last night was an epic fail!  I couldn't get either one of my tripods to the high angle and get them to STAY there.  I do have a wireless remote but not sure how much that helped.  It was hard to focus.  Anyone else have a hard time getting their camera to focus on the moon last night?  I always use spot metering when shooting the moon but I thought perhaps due to the eclipse I needed to change to center metering.  That only made focusing harder.  It was a clear night but a bit on the breezy side and COLD.  36 degrees in NE Texas in April? :o  So this is all I've got to offer.  Can someone (Frizzen?) tell me what the other planet is?  Is it Saturn?
