Oops, I probably should have added the picture details as well
(Edited original post too) [Edit x2 - Turns out I can't edit my original post
]

Canon 450d (XSi)
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM (@300mm)
F/5.6
1/250 sec
ISO 100
AWB

Davespanners - When looking through the viewfinder at 300mm what you see is essentially my second pic - Fully zoomed. But when you take the picture, you get what my first image looks like.
You have to crop the image to get what you want, like most images in this thread


Though, if you have Live View on, you can digitally zoom in a further 12x which is awesome as you can actually see the moon moving across the sky in real time - Fascinating!


The 70-300 is an awesome lens IMO, but from a beginners stand point, or that of a budget photographer, you might be better suited with a 55-250 - There are plenty of good reviews on it and the images it produces are very sharp and importantly, its reasonably inexpensive
+ Its a direct bridge from your 18-55 kit lens


Canon 55-250mm @ Amazon (£149)

You should also consider getting a nice nifty fifty prime lens - Primes always produce the sharpest images


Canon 50mm Prime @ Amazon (£79)

I should have tried manual focus, but with limited use of my left shoulder I couldn't find a good position to take the photos, so I used auto focus.



For those interested in the technical side:
Make : SAMSUNG
Camera Model Name : WB5000/HZ25W
Exposure Time : 1/500
F Number : 5.0
Exposure Program : Manual
ISO : 64
Focal Length : 110.4 mm
Focal Length In 35mm Format : 624 mm

Why did you use the flash?
And a higher ISO?


The moon was super duper bright, you should have had the ISO at the lowest possible setting
And flash at that distance would have made zero difference anyway

You should also set up a custom while balance, or use auto white balance, thus the moon would have looked its natural cool blue white, rather than having an orange smoggy pollution kind of colour


Well, the moon will be in its current bright position for atleast a week to come apparently

i have to say, after this so called "super moon" not only was i feeling a bit misled by the reports, but i felt a complete anti climax with the whole super moon event?!

i thought it was suppost to be its closest?? and therefore look at its biggest??!?!

i just say this as ive seen the moon look a hell of alot bigger, and just as bright in the sky as last night ... it just seemed like a normal full moon of absolutely nothing abnormal?

maybe i just dont get it .

The problem is that without any reference, how can we know that the Moon is bigger than it was a month ago?

I'm sure that if we had measured it when at the time when it was the farthest away from Earth we would see the difference.

its simple , ive seen the moon look almost triple the size it looked last night, but its when it is very low in the sky (and might have some sort of atmospheric things effecting it making it look bigger).

no measuring sticks needed, the moon last night looked like a pretty standard full moon to the average joe like me ... to scale it, from my POV, theirs a hill the moon rises over (sometimes more to see, depending on year time) ... the hill never changes so its very easy to see if the moon appears to be bigger or smaller.

I like this one a lot.. I know it isn't full of close up detail like others, but the balance of light and dark is breathtaking for me.. well, I am a smoker

There's no way you can see the Moon 3 times as bigger as normal just with atmospheric effects.

The next time you see the Moon extend one arm and use the width of one finger to compare it with the size of the Moon, so you can use it as a reference. The Moon is much smaller in the sky than we think, when we do not use any references.

This is my contribution with the moon taken 16h ago (on the 19th) here in Hamburg, Germany.
Shot this with a normal digitial cam (Canon SX1) in full zoom mode and optical stabilizer on full duty as I was holding the camera in my hand (but holding my breath to reduce shaking the cam):



Exposure time 1/5s, ISO 80

great pics, but good LORD that kid in the one scared the crap outta me for a bout half a second! I didn't get out of work til late last night, but from Michigan, it looked bigger and brighter than ever. I've never seen a moon like the Perigee moon in the earlier reply, but this super moon was pretty cool. I know it was a little mundane, but it still pains me to see people on here with replies like "what's the big deal, it wasn't that bright?" it's a rare event and should be celebrated, the Universe gives us special milestones to commemorate, like the completion of a rotation of the earth around the sun, or the coming of spring, or the super moon!!!

I like the way you think; no need to measure, I'll just eyeball it! That's the attitude that made every handyman project my dad ever started impossible to finish. The MOD came on and dropped some common sense on you and you said "no thank you, i like my head right here in the sand. it's warm." I'm sure there is an astrological org that keeps records of apparent moon size throughout the year, let's google it! find some evidence, but don't just tell us that the hill by your house doesn't change in size (prove it), so the moon wasn't any bigger and thus not impressive, what are all you idiots blathering on about? some of us are moon dorks, or Lunatics, if you will. stop ruining our fun!

Here is my effort, as seen in southern Scotland.



It's been cut off. How do I get the scroll bar like others have?

The moon was supposed to be 14% larger and 30% brighter last night.
It was a magnificent moon where I live.....
