    Moon At Night Obscured by Clouds

    A little fun tonight from the back porch:

    I like the glow.

    What settings do you use for night shots like this Indy?

    I'll normally use a low ISO for shots like this...this one was set to ISO100. Also, the aperture is fairly open at f5.0, and the shutter speed was set to 15 seconds. Usually when I shoot just the moon itself, I'll have the shutter speed set to somewhere between 1/125 and 1/250 second, but for a shot like this, I basically needed to open the lens up for awhile to get the glow that you see from the clouds. It was a bit of a shoot/check picture/adjust settings set of photos, since the settings were changing slightly through each picture thanks to the moving clouds.
