The Moon, as seen by a Canon EOS 350D camera

I am a lucky owner of a Canon EOS 350D digital camera, plus 3 sets of lenses — 28-105 mm, 90-300 mm, and one 50 mm for macro shots.

But this is just for a few days… I’ve borrowed the Canon from a friend, to experiment, and will have to return it soon; still, I have some time to experiment…

…and today I tried to make a photo of the Moon, when it was rising above the horizon.

To make the long story short, here are my modest results (click the thumbnail for full-size):

I tried a lot of manual settings, before I achieved some acceptable results. Also, the 90-300 lens is not very good at its long end (after the 220-300 mm range images tend to become a bit blurry), and still…

…I am very happy with this shot of mine – the first one in my life, in which you can see actually the Moon, and not a blurry yellow dot instead! ;-)

Maybe I’ll publish some more shots these days…

The 350D is a marvellous machine — pity that I can’t afford myself one like it… But maybe one day, who knows? :-)

PS If you’re curious about the full EXIF info (ISO, exact aperture, exposure, etc.), check the thumbnail!
PPS As if by accident, NASA Image of the Day (APOD) published yesterday a very interesting photo of the moon, too – reason is the full lunar eclipse which happened on the 28th of August and lasted for 90 minutes:)

    […] are some more photos, which are worth sharing (and Michel has a very nice Moon, made with the same Canon) …these days I’ll maybe publish […]

  2. Scott Martin Says:

    Dear Michel,

    Please remove the moon picture on your website:

    The photo is clearly my work, in which you ripped off from my business and website:

    I don’t appreciate people posting my photographs without credit, but posting my photographs and calling it your own
    is totally lame and unprofessional. If you can provide the original, full resolution, un-edited JPG file, I will believe you,
    but I’m 100% certain you cannot. Again, I’m asking you kindly to remove the photograph before I take further action.

    Dear Scott,

    I will answer you as soon as possible and in great detail, probably today (in e-mail).

    Just let me tell you in advance that there’s clearly some misunderstanding and the photo published here really belongs to me, otherwise:

    1) I would not have published it here, or
    2) I would have clearly marked it as an intellectual property of someone else, citing the name of the author and/or the link to the original.

    Cheers, Michel
