These photos were all shot in the Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA area. All shots were recorded on Eastern Daylight Time.
Friday evening: I had just received my MAGICA order from photo pro shop. I scrambled to get everything together. With Markins Q20i & their BV-20 Gimbal (sort of). I was sure that something was wrong with the combo. I sure felt like a dummy by the time I got it figured out. I didn't get the hub replaced that evening. I went out onto my deck, but the moon was behind my trees. So I had to make two trips out into my dark yard to setup my camera & tripod.
Understand that I didn't do anything right. I couldn't see my camera. I was struggling to set the release dial to remote. Unlike the D7000, the D7100 doesn't have one there. So, I was stuck setting the shutter speed high enough to outdo the vibration form the mirror slap & my clumsy shutter technique. This 1st photo was taken about 25 hours before the Super Moon (See the darker/grittier edge on the left):
The 2nd Photo was taken the next evening or actually early morning of Sunday, just about the time of the real Super Moon. I shot this photo using the remote with the Mirror Up. Unfortunately, some light cloud cover decided to pose in front of the moon:
The 3rd & 4th photo were taken on Sunday evening at moonrise. There were heavy clouds at the time. Several of Chattanooga Photographic Society had gathered at the 7th floor clubhouse of a condominium overlooking the Tennessee River and downtown Chattanooga. I was afraid that there might be conflicts if several used remotes, so I shot with mirror up and a 3 second exposure delay. Sorry, I'm not knowledgeable about frames "yet" for image 3. What NOISE???
We were run out of the clubroom & balcony at 10pm. So when I got home, I searched for another place to take a photo. I found a place in my driveway that I could shoot through a hole in my neighbor's trees. This 5th image shows a moon a little after the Super Moon. Note the darker edge on the right.
I used a D7100 with 300/f4 7 TC14E II, no filters, various ISO, and apertures.
I was a little hesitant to post after looking at some observatory pics I had seen. But, I was surprised with the detail I got in the 1st one. Particularly considering I used no remote or exposure delay in that one. I think the lack of moisture in the air and the higher perspective helped.
