After a day of very strong winds, heavy clouds, sunshine and showers as the night came we managed to get a peek of a full moon amongst the heavy clouds.
Taking a picture of the moon with a digital camera is not such an easy task. It needs just a little preparation beforehand to get a reasonable shot.
Shooting at the Moon
In this instance the camera used is a Nikon Coolpix P90, a 12megapixel camera with a 24x Optical zoom. In order to use the zoom successfully I took note of Yorgo’s advice in his article and set up a tripod as well as using a timer.
Catching the moon without cloud cover was a game of patience, as well as dedication for it was pretty cold outside. Here is the result below.
A shot to show the heavy cloud cover.
Unfortunately the cloud cover was too dense and the temperature outside too cold to sit around for too long outside in order to do shots with the other cameras. Something worth doing perhaps another night.
