Since we don't have a Moon thread on the new site - here we go! Post photos and all the camera info!D800 - Tokina 300mm f2.8 w/ 2x teleconverter (Kenko) @ f/8, 1/80th, ISO 100For full moon I have always heard (and it works as a starting point) to shoot it at ISO 200, 1/250th, @ f/5.6. Depending on the season, light pollution, not a full moon, limitations on lens, etc. that moves a bit. That has always been where I start from and have good luck. I always shoot manual for it as well. The Moon tricks even the best meters.
The moon as I understand it has no color.
Wow, great capture. Tried the same several nights ago and the results were disappointing.
Tried my hand at shooting the moon with a lens that was far too short. I kept white balance in auto. No tripod.The weird thing was that the color shifts a good amount.When the moon is quite bright, it can be surprising- you can use quite high shutter speeds. My only concern is trying to get realistic color out of these photos- since the colors can change so much, how do you guys correct for it?
