The moon, beauuutiful.....Yello

I never shoot celestial bodies. I leave moon shooting to the experts.  This shot is hand held with a canon 70-200 f4 L lens.  I had a lot of trouble, even though I was exposing manually.  I kept over exposing the moon.   I thought this was a total disaster so I throttled it way back in LR4.  It is not a steady image.  There is blur everywhere, in spite of image stabilized lens and iso 3200.

But the thing I like about this super moon, are the stars.  By not having a clue what I was doing, I got the stars exposed too.  I think that's magic.

Sometimes if you shoot for the moon, you get the stars.
