I saw a perfect opportunity today at work!!! (of course it was only like a 757 or something) but i stopped while loading bags to watch a plane pass RIGHT in front of the half-moon....

and thats much more rare here in the indiana boonies than BOS, where there is much air traffic up there..

ahhh.. if only i had a 1200mm or so  Big thumbs up

Oh yes another one of these Mark Garfinkel Moon shots. It gets kind of boring!

Can't you shoot something else?

Really Mark,

Like Vasco said, cna't you shoot something else?  Smile

Actually, i know how to stop him... I'll call his boss at the paper and tell them not to let him use the 600mm lens anymore!

(Just kidding Mark - I wouldn't do that to you buddy!)

New nickname, Mark "Lunar" Garfinkel !!

just kidding.....

If you want an even better thrill than the moon get a very long lens (1800 or more) and, next time the Space shuttle goes up to dock with the Int. space Station, get the sighting opportunity time from the nasa.gov website, and if it is clear that night, You can (maybe if you're lucky) get a plane & Space Station shot. If you did that it would be like a 1 in 1,000,000 shot because sighting opportunities last usually 2 - 3 minutes.

Last Shuttle mission, we had a sighting here in Huntsville on a clear evening just after sundown. Orbiting at 243 miles, I'm telling you it was HUGE. I saw it very clearly myself but without any magnification it looked like a huge moving star - moving at 17,000mph. I went in to the computer (nasa flight tracker) and within 5 minutes of the sighting here it was already flying over Brazil (now THATS fast) Don't forget that the solar panels are the size of football fields and reflect huge amounts of light especially when the sun is low in the sky, and its even bigger when the shuttle is docked. I've been told that on such a sighting opportunity, with a telescope, you can make out the shape of the unit.

Ah well, I just love aviation. Even in space!
