Lunar Imaging Session - February 12, 2019 (Waxing Crescent Moon ith Lunar X and V)

The sky this early evening was cloudy but it cleared up at around 8:00pm. Lunar X and Lunar V was best viewed earlier in the morning time at around 10:00am so by the time I took the image, sun ray had already pass the most favorable time to observe them by almost 10 hours. The best next favorable time to observe the next Lunar X and V will be March 13, 2019 around 11:00pm :) Anyway, still happy to image the Moon using my Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Camera on Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/8 with an exposure of 1/500 sec at ISO 400.

The sky this evening is clear but I'm so tired already so I just brought out my Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless Camera on Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/8 on sturdy tripod to image the Waxing Crescent Moon with exposure of 1/250 sec at ISO 400.

Lunar Imaging Session - February 7, 2019

The sky this evening is clear and I was able to spot the 2 day old thin crescent Moon after sunset. I use my Canon EOS M6 mirror less camera with Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 400mm f/5.6 to capture the thin crescent Moon as well as Earthshine.

Lunar Imaging Session - January 21, 2019 (Super Full Moon)

The sky this evening was initially cloudy where the rising Full Moon was located. But as the Moon rise higher, the clouds breaks up and display a clear Full Moon! Tonight's Full Moon is also called the Wolf Moon and is also called a Super Full Moon! There was a total lunar eclipse that happened earlier during the day but is not visible here in Asia due to daytime. But in the US, the Moon entered into the Earth's shadow and displayed a reddish shade. For my image of the Full Moon, I used again the Borg 76ED refractor at prime focus with Canon EOS M6 mirrorless camera on sturdy tripod with an exposure of 1/2000 sec at ISO 200.

Lunar Imaging Session - January 18, 2019

The sky this evening is partly cloudy but the Moon is quite nice tonight for me not to image it even with a simple tripod setup of using my portable and trusty Borg 76ED refractor with Canon EOS M6 at prime focus. 1/2000 sec exposure at ISO 400 was used to image the Moon.
