Word-of-Day-Challenge-Magnifying

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

make (something) appear larger than it is,
especially with a lens or microscope
~~~~~

Even with my 500 mm lens the moon

only took up a small amount of this image.

Any further magnification was achieved…

…via computer software and cropping.

visible (chiefly at night) by reflected light

Not much in the way of winter moons,

however, plenty of other moon images.

For this week’s Celestial post I have focussed

on our satellite…the Moon

Moonset out our back door and through

the neighbour’s trees.

 

Blood moon or not clouds were

obscuring the shot that night.

One of my favourite moon images

Moonset behind the neighbours trees

as it came out of my camera.

My all time favourite moon image.

Handheld 500mm Sigma lens

on Nikon D90 or D7100

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Astral

~~~~~

astral

relating to or resembling the stars.

As far as an astral photo was concerned

the first thing I thought of was the moon.

However, the moon is considered to be

a dead rock that only reflects the sun.

It does have an astral body

but life left it a long time ago.

My Nikon D90 captured this image

using a Sigma 50-500mm lens

Focal length: 500mm

Exposure: 1/500

Apperture: f/6.3

ISO: 400

Handheld

My spelling of ‘apperture’ is considered

to be archaic by Wiktionary,

while other web-based spell checkers

are happy with the double ‘p’.
