    I got a picture of the Super moon last night

    Maximum focal length I had was 300mm on 1.6x crop

    Here is the jpeg as I quickly grabbed it off card last night too

    Sigma 120-300 @ 300mm
    F4.5
    1/80sec
    3000k
    Tripod
    Manual


    I have seen what look like better with worse equipment. But never know if some have applied excessive sharpening as the look like it up close

    600mm versions inevitably look much better

    This was taken hand held from the previous full moon a few weeks ago. i tend to find F9 and above gives me better results.

    For me the point of shooting the super moons is to emphasise its extra size against something tangible, which is why you see those shots with it rising against buildings etc. You'd still need a pretty long lens for that though.
    Better than me though as every time there is a super moon around here its always cloudy.
