Someone go take a god damn picture of that fucking sexy moon tonight! All you cool kids with your awesome cameras and such. All I got is my damn iPhone and you just see a floating white blurry ball.

The Moon is hard to photograph as you see it.

Most good photos of the Moon, use fancy lenses and photo editing.

I took this ages ago through a telescope.
I don't have any adapter/mount to attach my camera to the scope though so it was done handheld which was tricky. Haven't tried it with a full moon yet.

The full moon looks like ass through a telescope because of all the glare. Notice how much better the pic looks along the terminator line than in the middle of the lit area.

The best moon shot I could get by free-lensing an old telephoto in front of my camera body...

A series of the blood moon eclipse from last week. I wish I had a better tripod---or a better lens, or both. Taken using an old manual focus lens adapted to a crop body. Edit: Ugh, failbook nerfed the image quality.

Very nice. We didn't get the blood moon over here but the other day when I was driving late at night it did look HUGE in the sky. I'd honestly never seen it so big, was weird. It was low in the sky though and I've read about how the moon often looks bigger lower down. Some kind of illusion.
