So, I’ve been trying to blog a little more about things outside of PowerShell.  Over this last weekend, I had an excellent opportunity to do so, by continuing my attempts to get the ultimate ‘moon shot’.  This time, leveraging my Sigma 70-200 2.8 and two 2x teleconveters, I was able to obtain the following shot.


Not too shabby, but still a lot of room for improvement.  When you start getting into the longer lenses, I’m finding that the movement of the moon is a lot more noticeable, and requires a faster shutter speed in order to capture a sharp image.  The trade off with this, of course, is that you have to shoot at a higher ISO, which also affects your image quality.  I think on my next run, I’ll try a camera with a better reputation for low light and see how it goes.  In the meantime, enjoy!
