    Default Tonight's moon

    A bit too low on the horison for good air, but still, I really like it at this early phase.

    Can you explain what you mean by 'a bit too low on the horizon for good air'?
    Thanks

    Yes. The lower the moon is on the horizon, the more air there is between you and the moon, and the more turbulent the air is.

    The lower you go, closer to the Earths horizon., the more atmosphere you are shooting through.

    Thanks, guys.
    Without stacking you don't have a chance when the air is so bad. Here is a single crop, with tons of sharpening and NR added, much more than in the stack.

    When the air is really good, there is little to be gained by stacking moon shots, some detail for sure, but the difference is not so great.

    I like the mood Dan. Mysterious.
    The crescent makes a beautiful composition.
    Much more than your previous moon shot post.
    Cheers,
    Don

    I agree. The moon alone is a pretty boring subject. It becomes more interesting when you see it either in relation to something else, terrestrial or otherwise,



    or if you try to concentrate on bringing out its features, which is what I have been playing around with.
    I like this place, for some reason, don't know why...



    click

    But there is definitely something captivating about it. If it is there, you HAVE to look at it. Still somehow hard or me to imagine that a hand full of guys actually were there..... unless of course the moon landings were in fact faked

    That second shot is great!
    Conspiracy theories be be damned ! ... I want so much, to continue to believe, that we actually did it!

    Good solitary moon shots are few and far apart, and never boring!
    You have just convinced me that "Bad air" is really just an excuse for inferior technique.
    You nailed that one - in my book.

    Bad air is ALWAYS bad, technique be damned!
    Stacking can only make it better, but a single shot taken on a cold night at altitude will knock the socks off anything I could ever produce here on the edge of a big city at 200 meters above sea level by stacking a bunch of basically inferior images.

    Beautiful pictures, very sharp to my eyes..!!

    Even with my Nikon equipment is hard to have a sharp image of the moon.
