The Moon

Photograph of the moon, taken with a 300mm zoom lens on a tripod. I then zoomed in nearly 100% into the file and cropped it to get the moon as big as I could. When I was trying to take this photo, I would center on the moon, snap a photo, step back for a second, check the image on the LCD screen, look through the viewfinder again and see that the moon was no longer centered. First couple of times I thought I was slightly bumping the tripod. Then I realized it was actually the movement of the moon across the sky. If I looked through the viewfinder long enough, I could see it happen with my own eyes. Taken on 6/24/2005 at 1:30AM.
