1. THANKS, Peg!

Not home tonight, and not seeing it.

FULL on 10/24; hope I'll be home.

2. Oh, thank you so much, my dear elleng!

I really wanted to get this one. I've been trying, without any success for several days. I just didn't know my equipment well enough.

Today everything came together and here it is.

I hope you'll be home to see it too. And I hope that the skies will be clear for both of us.



For the real photographers (not like me--I just play at it!) my settings were F11 and 1/60 of a second. Remote cable, camera on manual focus and set at infinity.

What other settings would be better?

6. Forecast is 'mostly sunny' @ home for Wednesday.

I just play at it too! Auto focus (I think; camera does the work! Ask the REAL photogs here what would be best!)

8. Thank you! Not sure what you mean by magnification.

My lens is 16--300mm and it was all the way out, plus I cropped the photo.

Does that help?

Thanks CP.

5. That's gorgeous!

Well done, CaliforniaPeggy!

We've been so covered with clouds here. Nothing like seeing the moon in a dark, velvety, night sky. I try to look for it every night when taking my dog out.

10. Thank you so much, my dear Ohiogal!

I hear you about the clouds. When I want to see the moon, I want those pesky clouds gone!

Clouds don't work when you want to see the moon.

14. Gorgeous!

I've been watching the moon and Mars dance together all summer and into the fall.

What a lovely photo!

15. Thank you so much, my dear volstork!

I've seen Mars up there with the moon too, but haven't been able to get them together, darn it!

Someday, perhaps...

I just have my eyeballs!

17. Just your eyeballs? I think those are underappreciated.

After all, our eyes help us see the world and they bring memories.

And sometimes I think that the photos I see in my memories are more vivid than the ones in my computer...

that affected viewing the skies all the way to the Midwest.
