With clouds coming for the next three nights, I figured I would try a big moon/jet photo. Cold but undaunted, I waited and studied and waited for the departure track off BOS R 27 to cross my view of the moon. Finally
with a Canon digital slr, a Canon 600mm, Canon 2x teleconverter which all equal to 1800mm..Camera setting at 400asa. 1/250th @ F8.....After all that...The photo is slightly more blurry than I need, thank you. But the experience of waiting and finally having it cross the moon with the heat from the engines visible is all a very cool (if not cold-brrr) experience.

again come down to sunny MEX we had a full moon as well last night, a beautiful one as well and it is hot down here.......87F/30C......I guess I will stay down here and spend the winter. I heard BOS is really cold.
If I was home I would have offered you some hot coffee or so. The spot is only 2 minutes from home.

You are the lucky one in Mexico. Sun, Beer, Buritos...We have none of that here in BOS..although we may have good Bean Buritos (Beantown haha) I photographed the moon from the Boston side not Winthrop..

Rwy 27 ( true it is heading west and not east) see 3 weeks away from home and I forget everything.
At what time did you take that shot?
Next time you have to be lucky and have a 742 taking off, that would probably be the shot of the year!
P.S. Sun / beer / tacos and the most beautiful woman you can imagine. Unfortuanetly it is really work why I am down here.

That is indeed a nice shot, I find it to be quite sharp for the focal length/speed you used! At 1200mm and 1/250th, that would be the same as shooting 50mm with a 1/8th or 1/15th exposure. Great pic Mark, keep up the good work.

Yah..I guess I would agree that if the blurriness was beefed up a bit it would be most appreciated..But
I don't mind. For a fellow photographer, I think it just looks marvelous. Just the way it is..I say.
