Don't forget 'what goes up must come down' - my favorite shot last year was the super moon setting the next morning. TPE is your friend here.

I have never shot the moon before with the intent of it being my main subject. I fully plan to be out there tomorrow and giving it a shot. Think I've got a nice place lined up that may allow me to have part of a bridge in the foreground. I am lacking in zoom power though only having a 200, but at least I am on a crop sensor. Took a few test shots tonight to see how I did. Manual focus, stopped down a couple stops from the suggested exposure, zoomed way in on the live view to adjust focus. Of course I'm stuck cropping a fair bit, but decently happy with the results tonight.

Nothing wrong with 200 on a crop and, in my opinion, the foreground makes the shot. There's no other way to show how super the moon is without a familiar object for scale.

Had a crazy fog bank roll in and envelope us here. Made for some cool fog shots but no sign of the moon...

Shooting through a horrible smog layer in SF this evening, this was probably as good as I got.

Here is a link to my album with 6 shots from this evening. Would love any comments if you take the time to visit the gallery.

This is probably my favorite one. Don't want to post all of them in this thread so here's just one!

Not the typical it's-so-sharp-it-will-slice-your-eyeballs moon shot, but the comp and color more than make up for it. Well worth the effort, I think.
