Re: April 14 Blood Moon Settings Help

Tried some test shots on a very bright moon last night.  I found going manual with iso 100, f8, 1/500 s worked well.  Even spot metering directly I was getting so much overexposure you couldn't resolve any detail.  Used A700 and Minolta 100-400 APO on tripod.  Wasn't super happy with sharpness.

Unfortunately last night was very clear.  Tonight we have overcast in the Boise area.  The moon is visable THROUGH the clouds, but very obscured.  Maybe we'll get a break so I'm staying up to give it a try.
