[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Really nothing special. The idea was to focus on some tree branches with big moon in the background. Unfortunately the moon has moved to much up and I had limited room (window) to change position. I have ended up with moon without the tree branches. It is not the first time when my artistic :) ideas finished as a very ordinary snaps but at least the moon was nice the other day.
Tamron 200-500

Sorry, As the lens and exif suggest it was DSLR A300 not H5.
The data of aperture and speed and so on were automatically updateted from photo exif but it was not the case with camera model so the old H5 came on top. I have changed it now manually. My apologies.

There was no tripod with me at the moment but I had used windowsill and pillow to make the camera stable.

Hello Mark,
I'm amazed about those details we can see. I have taken many moon pictures but I never succeeded with so many details. It is like you were using a telescope! Bravo!

Siemanko Marku
Świetne zdjecie , bardzo dobra robota.
Pozdrawiam .

You are right, Mark.
It has happened to me too.
You did a GREAT job with the DSC-H5; here's one with DSC-H9.
These Sony's are great machines.
Friendly greetings from Canada from Mario.

One of the best high resolution moon shots I've seen recently Mark, thanks my friend.

Witaj Mark!

Kratery robią wrażenie. Ten Tamron 200-500 to chyba niezłe szkiełko - perfekcyjna fotka ostra jek żyleta.


Hi Mark!

One of the most detailed moon shot I've seen! It's good that finally it turned out this way ;)
Thanks for the critique on mine as well! TFS

Best regards,
