Thank you for the info. 6:45pm moon rise according to PhotoBuddy app, if you lives in the SF Bay Area. 8:00pm sunset, so moon probably won't appear in the sky until close to that time.

And, the skies are forecast to be clear Saturday night, here on the California North Coast. I'll be ready and spot metering for daylight. Full Moon, damn, I'll have to shave at least twice. Rich

Hope you all have a nice clear sky as I have.

This moon IS bright and as duck shooting season stared today at dawn over here in New Zealand (they woke me up at 6:30 this morning with their shooting, grrr on a Saturday, ah well joys of living rural ) it gave me the idea for the title

(and one of the characters in Alien vs Predator that's showing on the tube just happen talk mention this )

I know this moon is showing 30% brighter and 14% or so bigger but my E-5 is a bit confused about the distance

Cheers,

Harm

As an reformed astrophotographer I always get excited to see AP posts.

The full moon tends to be more "flat" becuase shadows are reduced. The same concept as shooting mid-day or with on camrea flash. Lighting is everything in photography. I tend to like shooting at all the other phases... you will also notice different features and details as the shadows change with the phases.

I don't intend this to be negative. I encourage people to shoot the full moon at perigee AND at other times as well.

I'll share an image taken with my E-620 and if the sky is clear I'll even take one of the moon this weekend with my (not so new now) E-5.

Hope you have a clear and steady sky, enjoy!

Very nice photo; what settings do you recommend? I'll be using E-5xx and E-6xx's with 70-300mm lens tripod mounted, no remote shutter control.

Beutiful subject made a beautiful images. Pretty good from 2 old lenses that cost less than 200 USD. Just use a monopod to stabilise the camera and lens. The moon is bright enough to give high shutter speed on spot metering mode.
