The Moon (View From Kollenberg)

”When the moon is not full, the stars shine more brightly.” – Unknown

I always want it to take pictures of the moon before and as much as I tried with my old lumix point and shoot camera I could never get it right. Now with my Sony NEX 6 and 55-210mm lens I want it to see what I can come up with.

On a longest focal length and a crop sensor like the Sony NEX 6, the Sony 55-210mm lens becomes 315mm which can cover a significant distance. I was impressed how well it performed without tripod and how sharp the lens is. I was shooting hand held so I had to increase the ISO which introduced some noise. First shot at 1/400 came out very good! I tried some other settings and kept shooting for another hour…

I hope you like this shot and will give a thumbs up…
