#lunareclipse2018 as the moon just begins to move out of shadow.
This image is actually a stack of 10 images, that's what it took to get to this level zoom from the 135mm lens on crop sensor raws.
impressive, what was the configuration of your camera/lens ?
@akira oh! well the exposure depends also on the aperture. Normally moon is very bright and doesn't need that much exposure (1 second on a huge aperture like F2.0 was only because this was an eclipsed moon that is a lot dimmer)
Also on night sky you do not want to go over 15 seconds on even on a wide angle lens due to stars shifting blurring the image. On a telephoto lens, that time is much shorter. (e.g. I started getting visible blurring even on 4 seconds while photographing this)
yes, i heard sometimes to use long expo. but with my 50mm i had certainly no chance to see that it was ok on the screen. so too bad to forget my 200mm lens this day ^^
@akira heh, it happens. :) stacking can also be replacement to a longer exposure, if movement is an issue by the way. (that's actually how a lot of deep space objects are photographed) and now I will stop geeking on this ;)
