As some of you know, this is the closest the moon has been to Earth as it cycled through to full in almost 70 years. As such, I put on a heavy coat and braved the hike to a nearby empty field.

Cropped image shot on just the Sigma

The photos could be better, and they’re definitely less sharp than other moon photos I’ve taken but capturing the moment is as much a win in my book. Shot on an A6000 paired with a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 / Kenko 2x teleconverter (600mm effective) - definitely need to figure out how to properly shoot astro on the Sony, though finding somewhere in the GTA that is dark enough is quite difficult. Still debating whether or not to pick up an A7R mk1 to add to the kit.

Sigma 70-200 (ISO 100 1/30 f11 200mm)
Sigma 70-200 + Kenko 2x (ISO 100 1/60 F4 400mm)

I’ll be heading off to Rally Tall Pines in two weeks time so maybe I’ll hang back in Bancroft a bit and give ti another go. Who doesn’t love shooting in the dark and cold of winter?
