I couldn’t take a photo of the full moon last night because we had clouds and rain last night. The skies cleared up today and this was the moon a few minutes ago.
Canon T3i, 250mm on a tripod. I’m not sure what setting this was because I kept changing it.

If you had a tracking telescope, you can mount the camera on that telescope to track the moon and take a long exposure picture.
Nice shootin’, Tex.
You can also take videos with a higher zoom factor by choosing the 640×480-Crop-Mode in the video settings. The image is then NOT scaled down from Full-HD-Video: instead, the camera records the center 640×480 pixels of the chip, therefore providing a higher zoom factor…
Uhm, don’t know if you know what I mean, just have a look here: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_EOS_550D_Rebel_T2i/movie_mode.shtml (video example of crop mode at the end of the page, also works for T3i)
Cool! I’ll have to try that.
I’m just glad I can enjoy a mooning again on the internet.
I took a picture of the moon last night too. Yours is better than mine. I took mine with my little point-n-shoot, a Canon SX230. http://hundewanderer.com/2011/10/jagers-here.html
Your is a great picture! Good job.
Hey moon experts, what is that huge crater thing (lower right) that looks like it has rays going almost half way around the moon? No atmosphere, so it wasn’t carried in the air.
I’m no moon expert, but I know it’s the Tycho Crater.
I’ve made this one with a Canon SX30is…
