Waxing Gibbous Moon

Four months ago, I took a photo of the Waxing Gibbous Moon with the all-purpose 28-300mm lens.

Tonight, I photographed a 90% full Waxing Gibbous Moon.


Nikon D800, AF-S VR Nikkor 300mm f/2.8G IF-ED II, ISO 100, 500mm, f/4.8, 1/250s

Handheld, but I really need to get this combo (300mm f/2.8 + TC-17EII) on a tripod. The 300mm lens is a beast. Even though I was bracing myself against the car, there were more misses than hits. For a change, I had to scale down the image of the moon to fit the page.
