A Valentine’s Day Full Moon

Strange as it sounds, it was actually hard to photograph the Valentine’s Day full moon! My previous settings (and all of the other settings as well) did not work at all, completely overexposing the moon and obliterating all details on it, so I opted for another digital camera that did not turn the moon into a midnight sun.

The engine of the Canon Powershot SX 270 HS also offered better and faster tracking capabilities. This photo is taken at 80X digital zoom, and despite it not being as sharp as the photos taken of the half-moon a week ago, it nevertheless shows considerable details on the moon surface.

  1. You did well. its my ambition to grab the moon(in detail). I even bought a better camera to do just that. Still getting round the instructions on how to use the thing! At the moment the camera does strange things. Well done with your moon! Its perfect:)
