"And the Moon, ---We have measured for her mansions (to serve) till she returns like the old (and withered) lower part of a date stalk."
I cropped the actual shot and it seems closer than using 200mm coz its 10.2 Megapixels =)

Waning gibbous with 97% of the Moon's visible disk illuminated.
I tried a redux of the Moon tonight, since it wasn't hazy. It is a slight bit better, but I think I can still do better. The moon was lower, so perhaps better to wait until it's high in the sky so the light is traveling through less atmosphere. Also, a quarter moon or so makes for a more dramatic terminator, when the craters and peaks are highlighted by the sun edge-on.
by Robert Louis Stevenson
The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;
She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
On streets and fields and harbour quays,
And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees.
The squalling cat and the squeaking mouse,
The howling dog by the door of the house,
The bat that lies in bed at noon,
All love to be out by the light of the moon.
But all of the things that belong to the day,
Cuddle to sleep to be out of her way;
And flowers and children close their eyes
Till up in the morning the sun shall arise.

The Moon was nice and clear tonight I always like photographing it.
The Wolf Moon is a full moon that occurs in January. Its name comes from hungry wolf packs that would howl outside the villages of Native Americans. This full moon is also known as the Old Moon or the Moon After Yule.
It was 5 degrees when I bundled up and went out to get this shot.....but it was well worth it, the moon was huge and bright!
To nights moon,
haven't done a moon shot in a while,its so bright to night couldn't resist.
I know there are 100's of moon shots on Flickr, but when I saw this images detail I was excited to show it off. It was really cool how the moon had this amazing glow tonight. Say goodnight to Sunday. Mondays almost here.
Orion Europa 250 telescope - first look at the moon and photos with this telescope
The full moon Friday night will be the biggest one of the year as Earth's natural satellite reaches its closest point to our planet.
Earth, the moon and the sun are all bound together by gravity, which keeps us going around the sun and keeps the moon going around us as it goes through phases. The moon makes a trip around Earth every 29.5 days. But the orbit is not a perfect circle.
The moon's average distance from us is about 238,855 miles (384,400 km). Friday night it will be just 221,560 miles (356,567 km) away. It will be 14 percent bigger in our sky and 30 percent brighter than some other full moons during the year, according to NASA.
in the night of the Winter Solstice. Apparently this sort of thing only happens every 300 years or so. I think I saw on the news tonight that the last time an eclipse like this happened was in 1678. Not a really good picture, but the best my camera could handle. Rather remarkable to see this though. Photo by Frank
The only semi-acceptable shot of the moon that I've taken. I adjusted contrast and sharpened extremely slightly in photoshop. I cropped out a lot though so the pic will be smaller. Still probably easiest to see detail in largest format. Any suggestions? I'd love to get one of those telescope connector things.
Slowly but surely ... on its way to becoming a full moon.
The high over cast skies, the late blue light of sunset and a sliver of the moon (with earth glow) lends to the other world feeling. At first I wasn't going to bother, but it keep nagging me...so here it is.
Moon has been so beautiful last few nights. I always try to capture the moon as I see it, with light and glow. I'm not going for a technically sharp picture here.
The Moon, of course the image is not so sharp, my little camera don't have that "BIG" zoom, but we can see some craters. After taken this photo, an falling star just crossed the sky right in front of the Moon. Was one of the greatest thing i ever seen. I hope you like this picture. Dont worry, when i have powerfull lenses i will make better shots. :)
I made a time lapsed video of the Moon rise, you can watch here:

This was a hugely exciting night. Not so much because of the moon and its earth shadow but because of all the things that were happening while I was out there trying to get a decent shot of the happenings. Well, I started on the upper level balcony because some trees were in the way initially. What a complete bust. Yes, the color turned out great but it was way too dark in spite of all the various combinations of camera/lens/iso/shutter speed/exposure settings that I tried. What an absolute disaster. Even checked the differences between having IS (image stabilization) on and off. Nothing worked. So, I moved my efforts to the ground level after the moon was at a decent height. All that resulted in was my belligerent dogs going after the coyotes who decided to grace us with a visit. Short lived at best. Not the best hosts, my dogs are. That didn’t do much for my concentration on the perfect blood moon shot. So, I put the dogs inside and tried again. No go, simply too dark. So, I came back out again after the spectacle was over and the moon once again visible to the lens and camera. Took some shots, the coyotes had returned by this time, I did not see them but heard them rummaging around. Obviously, they were impressed with my stamina.
Since this was rather a pale image and I quite liked the effect of the actual blood moon, I did some work in lightroom, colorwise, and came up with this. The cool thing here is that you get to see the whole moon and not have part of it covered in the earth’s shadow. I know, I know, here I go again, it’s a feeble excuse but that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
The moon just after midnight (morning of August 9). Northern California.
