Moon

I was playing around with the telephoto lens on the new camera trying to figure it out and experiment with the various settings. Finally, I found a way to take some decent shots of the night sky.

Yeah, now I'm looking in to buying some more powerful telephoto lenses and a more solid tripod for the camera.

The Moon, not quite full.

Working hard on the novel. Pushing to make the deadline.

Some great news! Lower birth rates!

Nice Moon Shot! Most lenses have trouble autofocusing at night, so you probably figured out to turn off the auto-focus and set the manual focus to Infinity. A nice stable tri-pod definitely helps!

Thanks, Jack. I had the tripod set up, but I actually did use the auto focus on this one. I also tried to manual focus on some shots with similar results.
