Out of this world – amateur lunar photography

I have so much fun with my little Nikon.  If I brace it just right (usually on the mailbox or the hood of my car) and zoom in on the moon all the way, I can get some pretty decent shots.

Once, I used a sponge floor mop as a monopod.  That worked pretty well!  The sponge protected the camera and the handle provided some much needed stability as I propped it on the ground.

Here are a few!

If that isn’t out of this world enough, here is a photo of the moon that makes it look all strange and mysterious.

    1. No, just a lot of tricks to keep it steady, some careful zooming, and doing it on auto. Mine’s a Coopix L830, of all things. It won’t take good low light photos of anything else – just bright light sources.
