I started shooting moon photos
many years ago, and was never good at it. As of late with my Pentax X5, which did not get very good ratings, I have
found the moon the be a favorite night of shooting for me. I love my X5 and would recommend it to anyone. It was
inexpensive. Once you learn the proper setting on your camera you will be amazed what you can do.
Make sure you have a tripod and
know how to use the delay function or a remote button so you can insure there is no shaking of the camera. You also
need to consider the Earth and Moon rotation. You will be following it as it travels across the sky. You will
need to adjust your camera every few photos you take. One thing I like about my Pentax is the adjustable viewer screen.
I can put it on the tripod and not have to bend my neck in all funky positions to see the screen and snap a shot.
If you should have any questions,
please feel free to get a hold of me.
I hope you enjoy our section of Space.
