moon with m6ii and 18-150
4

My copy of the 18-150 doesn't thrill me, but these shots of the crescent moon are intriguing, especially the one at 1/8 second, handheld.  These were raw shots exported from photoshop with no additional editing, such as NR, just the import setting, Adobe Standard.  Noise is pretty obvious with the faster shutter one, but it was at 51,200!

Wrong timing to take a Moon picture.  Your Moon  is wayyyyy overexposed to allow you to picture the foreground.  The best solution I was able to come-up with is to wait until a few days before full Moon and clic the picture of the rising moon while the sun is on the horizon.  That way, you can shorten your exposure and still see the first plane.

You rather missed my point.  This was a grab shot of the crescent moon to see how things looked.  And seeing how the lens stabilization was working.

You think I'm so stupid that I wouldn't use a tripod for a serious moon shot? 

If I were doing a serious moon shot, I would have used my 150-600 tele, tripod mounted and exposure adjusted.  But why would I want to do that?   Nothing new about moon shots.

So, if it was only a test shot, why posting it here without labelling it as such.  I was trying to help.  Around here, we don't know the skill level of each person.  You may well be a professional, but here, there are many beginners.

You sound pretty warm bloodied for a guy from up north.  Happily, winter is coming.  Hopefully, it cools you off a bit!!!

Why so snarky ? You invited comments and you got some.

It’s a snap of the moon at 50k plus iso.

What comments are you hoping for?

I think we should move this thread to a boring Moon pictures thread.  I'll be first!!!  lol!!!!

Boring moon picture taken with a 40 years old manual Maksutov design, 1 meter focal length, Russian lens.  The lens is a lot more interesting than the picture actually!

Cheers!

Great but you should have used some fill flash to lighten the heavy shadow top right.

Yes...  I know...  But only Canon flashes have a command mode that allows for exploding a  Supernovae on demand.  Nikon flashes allow only controling brown dwarves.

You should  try the Godox Snow White 7, blows the Nikon out of the water.
