Waning Gibbous Moon

Day 130 - 09/06/20

I was going to say that unfortunately I couldn't sleep at all tonight (it's 4am), however it's actually very fortunate. If I was sleeping I would have missed this glorious moonset (yes that's a word, I Googled it!). I also googled which phase the moon is in and it is an 86.8% waning gibbous moon.

I've never done night photography before, let alone moon photography. But for figuring it out, especially without Google, I think the photo came out very well. Please don't judge too harshly as I know it's not perfect, but for my competency level I think I did okay. I welcome all tips and tricks for moon photography too!

I'm also having some trouble with my camera which is causing a lot of noise in my images. I'm going to take it back to the shop to get it repaired, unless anyone has some advice on how to fix it at home.
Stunning. I like the mood of this image.

A great wake of turning a negative into a positive.

Awesome shot... I’ve been wanting to “shoot the moon” but it has been overcast for days and I haven’t even seen it.

@bybri yes it was so difficult. Its funny, I thought it would need a long exposure, but it turns out that it's a relatively short exposure - only 1/100 sec. I was grinning ear to ear when I got the shot as I didn't think its something I could achieve. Now to get my camera sorted and the photo will hopefully be even better next time!
