Thank you for this picture!

Looks like we were up to the same thing last night! Funny how the moon looks just the same in Missouri and it does in Montana ;). Great job, Ryan!

Thanks Winfried! The moon was bright, but I was still very surprised how easy it was to take a hand held shot.

Thanks Eve! Yes, it's the same moon. But I took some at midnight, and then again at 2 when it was even brighter, and there was some very noticeable rotation just within two hours. It's amazing how much the appearance can change of something so big.

Thanks Rom@nce! It's my first try to photograph the moon. It looks to me like a cantaloupe.

Cheers, Ryan

What a lovely picture of the moon, the details can be seen quite clearly. It's a great capture, Ryan, I like it! Greetings, Anne

Thanks Anne! I was very happy with it, and amazed that the texture of the craters can be seen so clearly along the dark edge. Cheers, Ryan

Ryan you and your new lens did a fantastic job capturing the detail of the moon! :D

Your framing it off to the corner adds additional interest! :D

Thanks Axel, Adl, and Pam! It was nice and bright, and easy to see.

Looks like we are all on a moon kick! Very nice job, I like how you have it off center too.

Ryan Calhoun on October 28, 2007

Thanks Vicki! Yes, I looked around and found quite a few moons taken on this exact day. It was very near full, so it was the perfect time for it. Cheers, Ryan
