    Playing around trying to get the right settings. I shot this one with a tripod, ISO 200, Aperture F10, Shutter at 1/125. Not perfect but a pretty good shot

    The Canon EOS T3i with macro lens, an 18-55mm, a 75-300mm, a wide angle, and a telephoto plus a half dozen assorted filters, 2 SD32 memory cards and lots of other goodies. I had settled on the Nikon 7000 because I'm partial to Nikon but I got such a phenomenal price on the Canon that I bought 2, one for me and one for Mike.

    Partial moon shots always look better than full moon shots because the depth the partial moon's shadow entails into the craters and hills. The full moon just looks like a plate, with no features being highlighted.

    Have you ever tried to take a 2-3 second shot of the moon with a dark filter and f32? I tried a few, and the few that came out right had this weird pale purple light to them. The hills in the background looked haunted as they were illuminated solely by the moon.

    This was, of course, 20 some years ago with a Yashika 35mm SLR that my dad gave me (that he bought in the late 60's).

    Someday, I'll have to dig them out and scan them for digital NSA cataloging and transmission.
