That was basically what I was saying Ira.
I'm keen to get that rareity on film where the moon is low (near the horizon and appears biggest) coinciding with a dramatically coloured sky so I can go out for a drive to my nearby vista and behold the wonder.
Ash - in Brisbane on 19Mar11, moon rise is at 1722 and set is 0458 on the 20th. It will be a little (not much) later for you in Toowoomba.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been wanting to take another crack at the moon. My previou attempt was subpar not really sharp at all and I didn't really have time to play around with different lens combos. Hopefully this time i will be able to take so,e wonderful shots.

It most likely will be cloudy and raining that night. If the weather co-operates, then shooting around 2 or 3 AM should be the best time to minimize atmospheric effects.
Rising on east coast of US, should be closest on the 18th. for us?

Some people do not mind getting up early.

This is from my first attempt last month. You definately need some reach, I don't think 200mm is going to do it unless you are on top of a 14,000 ft peak.

Hmm If I can't get track down at least a 200mm lens I guess I could try stacking about 4 2x teleconverters and using my 43mm! lol.. but seriously I wonder if anyone has been daft enough to try this...

Full Moon and Twilight

Every month at fullmoon there is one morning when the moonset is just before sunrise and moonrise is just after sunset. An oppportunity to shoot a bright moon against a darking sky with enough beautifull twilight to paint a landscape rather than a silhouette or a NASA type of shot.
When the moon is touching the horizon it is an optical illusion that makes it look big...but your camera will see it that way too and if it is even closer this month that will be great.
A 200mm lens will be ok...a tripod...no slower than 1/60 sec or so.
Thanks for the heads up.

Not the best, but this is what I'm going for.
