Much has been made about the Super Moon on 14th November 2016 and so I took up the challenge of getting a good shot of it.  After reading many many articles about how to photograph the moon with many of them suggesting using a tripod!  I couldn't quite get my head around that as the moon is really brightly lit and so by using Spot Metering, the camera is only measuring the light reflected from the moon.  As a consequence, both these images have been taken by hand-holding the camera.

These are my settings and my images.  Judge for yourselves if the settings are right or wrong.  

Canon 70D 100-400mm @400mm ISO100, 1/800sec, Spot Metering and hand-held.....

Cropped in version......

Anyone spot the Clangers or the Soup Dragon?....LOL
