How bigger than usual was the big perigee moon 2013?


363,300 km far above … you have probably already watched hundreds of pictures representing the “14% bigger than usual” perigee moon. I could shoot this big moon with the same lens and camera used for a normal, average sized moon (384,400 km far away).

I doubt I could have recognize such difference without a digital comparison.

Nevertheless, a good occasion to practice moon photography with clouds! D800 set up: 70-200 VR-II mounted, spot metering, ISO 100, 1/400 sec and f/5.6 – easy to shoot it even hand-held!

      Dear Jim, I am honored you nominated artborghi for the Super Sweet Blogger award. Thank you very much. Even more, I am glad artborghi pictures let you use your imagination: that’s such a great award to a photographer!

      I will honor the rules of this award in a new post as soon as possible … despite the huge amount of calories required ;)
