Lunar Imaging Session - August 11, 2014 Super Moon (Perigee Full Moon)
I waited for the Perigee Full Moon aka Super Moon this morning at around 2:09am to image the biggest Perigee Moon for the year 2014. This is not only the closest and the largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2014. The Moon will not be this close again until the full moon of September 28, 2015. I also made a comparison image of this morning's Perigee Full Moon against the Full Moons of July 12, 2014 and April 15, 2014. All 3 images were taken using same lens so I can make more accurate size difference. I used a Canon EOS 500D DSLR camera with Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/11.
