The Moon

I noticed that the moon was full today, and I tried again to take some photos. The last time I tried they weren't very good. I'll keep trying until I get it right. This is time this is what I came up with for the night. I was surprised that the best shots were the ones with the higher aperature. The lower aperature shots had too much of a haze around the moon and I couldn't see any detail.

Since I was out there, I took some with the shutter open for 30 seconds and a helicopter decided to fly by just as the shutter was open. But it looks ok anyway. Those stars moved a lot in 30 seconds, well actually we did.

Oh, I used a 70-200mm at 200mm, ISO 100, F4.5, 1/1000 for the moon shot. For this streaking shot, I used F2.8 for 30 seconds. I didn't want to use the shutter release so that's why I didn't use a higher F Stop, or expose longer.
