Pre-Supermoon…!

Yesterday was the day before the Supermoon event, where the moon isĀ 221,566 miles away, at the point of Perigree closest to Earth, resulting in the biggest and fullest full moon since 1993.

I spent 2 minutes trying to get a clear picture of the Moon, but only managed to get the above shot, which is slightly blurred. This was using a 1/2000 exposure, with a 200mm zoom lens.

I’m going to try again tonight but use a manual focus either side of the automatic focus.

Just as I logged into WordPress, there was the following blog with a very clear image on it! That’s my target for tonight!
