    Default Mooning?

    apparently the moon is going to look larger this weekend than any other time this year, so those of you with a moon fetish can break out your cameras and get your fix

    Yep I may even make an effort. Rising over Ohope Beach could be good. Hopefully.

    not sure I could be arsed... I loaned my 100-400 to someone months ago & haven't needed it back thus far. Guess i could always try & stack some converters & see what gives.

    I don't think you need a close up of it, just get somewhere to show it's size, ie have a good foreground.

    Should be good to still have some ambient light as well I would have thought, it is a pretty bright ball after all.

    That's one of those things about a full moon. It rises when the sun sets. Physics and all that.

    The day before full moon is generally a better bet for moonrise shots. The moon still looks full and its exposure is close to the sky/foreground exposure.

    That cant be true can it ? the moon does not orbit the earth in 24hrs and I have seen the moon rise many hours after sun sets. The sun rise and fall changes significantly season to season and according to lattitude.

    It's also up several hours before sunset sometimes. Also solar eclipses kinda put a dent in that theory.

    It's not true. The moon is often out during daytime

    A full moon means the moon is opposite the sun. Think from a lighting perspective. It can only be exactly opposite at one particular time and the sunset = moonrise (to the second) will only occur at wherever on the earth the moon is rising at that time. But for all useful purposes, the rule holds true. For this month, true full moon is at 1535 NZST on the 6th. The moon rises at 1722 and the sun sets at 1729 in Auckland.
    Moonrise changes by about an hour a day. The day before and the day after still look like a full moon though.

    Solar eclipses occur on new moons, not full moons.

    Sorry, I misread your first post and thought you were talking about moonrises in general

    and why wouldn't i ! The 28th is my birthday ..sussing the moon situation as i speak.. Jos how did you do that moon shot last month..looking through the leaves/tree ..whenever i try the leaves are all furry unfocused and yours were more like a focused silhouette. I'll have to back track now and see how focused your moon was in your shot ..

    I just focused on the laves Lia. The moon is fuzzy.

    If you were quick you could do a series of shots focusing from the foreground to the moon and focus stack them in Photoshop.
    I might have a go at that myself.
    I'm trying to think of a place that will show the large size of the moon against or through things. A timelapse would be good too. It usually looks biggest as it just rises.

    This is one over the Rimutakas

    I'm too scared to go outside today, first day of duck season. Sounds like a bad day on the Gaza Strip.

    Took the boys to find the Super Moon. Alas, the clouds killed the money shot of it breaking the horizon but we did eventually get a glimpse

    Love the anticipation shot.


    As for the others, it seems quite acceptable to clone in a sharp shot of the moon.
