On Oct. 8th there will be a lot of Moon available to image, as it will be 85%
of Full. Unless there is some compelling reason to the contrary, your G10 should be
able to capture it just fine.
BTW, there's also a very nice Moon out this week....
This week may be problematic here in the northwest. We have some wildfires going on...normal at this time of year, and it is very hazy. Hopefully by Oct, the rain will have come, and the skies will be clearer. We have some of our most beautiful weather in fall...clear days, cool, trees turning colors. It's a great place to live. I am reading the thread on astrography so I can learn something about it. Thanks Dizzy
Firstly, the lens I made this image with is a f4-f5.6; i.e. the maximum aperture varies depending on the focal length. Not like the 70-200 f4L which stays at f4 right through the focal range. So, that's just me informing readers of the lens that I used.
With that lens I shot one image at 4 seconds at f22 (the land and sky). And then I shot another image at 1/6 second at f22 (the moon). And then I blended one on top of the other.
I'm marking my calendar and looking forward to it. Great idea!
Oh yes, I'm in, as long as I get my 100-400 back from Canon in time.
Unfortunately, all of us here in the far NW are going to be buried in clouds, or worse yet, rain.
Still, I might try a "through the clouds" shot once the Moon is high, but that's only if it stays dry.
Still, I'll be sitting here late into the night enjoying the posted pics from everyone else in
I am not sure how the weather will be here in Brasilia, specially now that the rain season is starting, but luckily I will have the chance to get nice shots tomorrow. It will be nice be part of this project.
According to GMT / UT, it's already October 8th and since Rain is expected tomorrow ( I hope I get a nice flood ), I'll be shooting my photos when I get done with dinner later tonight. Right now, the sky is nicely clear, occasional passing clouds, but nothing bad, and a bit breezy, so I'll have my scope is a nice sheltered area.
If you have clear skies and capture Moon photos, don't forget to post your Moon photography on the http://observethemoonnight.org/ web site and remember to say that you're photo is part of the "CiC Universal "Shoot the Moon" Event"

Only just remembered to do this! I was a bit hampered by the hazy cloud over London tonight but here's my first entry...
A very nice couple stopped and showed some interest, which was very nice, so I told them the name of the website. Hopefully they have the time to logon and take a look! If so, then I apologise for seeming a bit rushed! But thanks for taking the time to say hello!
Nice one Tommy!
Well, I can see the moon but there is too much low cloud to get a clear shot - yet. It may clear later tonight but if it doesn't I took some shots last night, mostly to try to get the setup correct for tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Wouldn't you know - It has been bright and sunny all week long - today it's overcast. Maybe the moon can peek through the clouds. It's beginning to get dark here, and I have my camera ready.
