That's a really nice shot of the moon - though it looks like the air was a bit unsteady.

Have you tried taking a bunch of shots and stacking the images? That's a really great way to bring out the fine detail.

Its a sunrise, but thanks.

My camera has a 50 times zoom, but I really could have used a tripod.

Not the sort of thing you take on holiday though.

I am curious about the sunset. I am guessing these were taken with digital? What, if any filtering did you do to the sun? Is that the way it appeared when you shot it? No right or wrong answer, tis not a trick set of questions. Just curious since it looks light everything has shifted to an unnatural red hue.

It was a digital, do they even make film any more?

Sometimes I took the sun on just the automatic setting, sometimes I took it on what the camera described as sunset mode, which I guess did make things redder.

To complicate things furhter, on the balcony we had there was a glass section that was tinted and I snapped a few through that, but I cant tell you which out of any of those combinations this was, I took hundreds!

No worries, the reason I asked is it has that distinctly red hue from telephoto digital sunsets. I haven't tried this yet with images through a telephoto but I am trying it with sunsets in general based on input from another photographer. Try bracketing your shot next time and merging them in photoshop or some HDR program. You can do it with three but five is better or at least 2 stops difference in each direction if you only do three.

A shot of lunar totality a few years back. Canon Da-20 mounted to a TV-102 4" refractor.
