Fly me to the Moon

Fly me to the Moon

I can't stop thinking of the Frank Sinatra song "Fly me to the Moon" when I see this shot. It appears that Saturday mornings are good times to try to get a shot of the moon with nearby aircraft.

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II (Canon)
Camera Lens:
Focal Length: 375 mm
Exposure: 1/100 sec
Aperture: f/14
ISO: 100

  • Remarkable definition on the moon for just a 375mm focal length on a full frame sensor... Sure its not a composite?

  • I can confirm this is one RAW shot, with only slight cropping, contrast & sharpening in Lightroom.
