Photo of the Supermoon on November 15 2016

We recently had this “Supermoon” event in mid-November, where the Moon was abnormally close, and won’t be this close again for another 20+ years.  I decided to try something different. I got my camera out, set it up on a tripod in the driveway, used a 55 – 200 mm lens, and took a few photos using a very long exposure. I seemingly tried 20 different combinations of settings in order to try to get the right resolution without getting a washed out picture. I took so many that I lost track of what combination of setting actually worked. Ah well. In any case, I got one good photo. I used Adobe Lightroom to help clean it up a bit, and here ya go.

I think it’s pretty good for a novice.
