This spot grants one of the best vantages in Fallbrook and we got to see a nice fiery sunset too in the other direction. Our friend Patricio showed up, a long time astronomy buff, and assembled his telescope on the gravel knoll. A pilot/astronomy buff we had never met before stopped by and we all had a nice chat.
My output was mixed, for a variety or reasons, the first, as usual, probably ineptitude.
I don't do enough of this sort of work, perhaps I should have put the converter on?
In any case I don't believe in making perfect the enemy of the good and I am reasonably happy.
They expose a shot for the landscape and then they shoot a separate shot of the moon perfectly exposed.
Then they put them together in a technique called compositing.
Then the moon can be as big and bright as they want it and they can stick it where they damn well please.
I won't do that. I think it is cheating and I also think that it is cheesy and dishonest.
But everybody makes their own rules, figures out what is right for themselves.
My closeup work lacked a little of the good definition of last month's work.
I probably should have taken the vr off on the tripod. Will have to have a look at last month's settings and see what I did differently.
Might just be a different angle that makes the crater angle problematic. Live and hopefully learn.
It was nice of the Flower Moon to show up and shine over our fair little town. I have been getting some nice shots of various things from you kind folks, including pictures of Luna here, and will post later.
