I took a few photos of both the planet and the moon. I was unable to balance the brightness of the moon with the dimness of the planet. I decided instead just to photograph the crescent moon.
- When photographing the moon, it seems very difficult to capture the stars as well. Maybe a special filter would work.
- A crescent moon seems to show the craters in a way that a full moon doesn't. The shadow of the earth tones down the brightness so the craters near that shadow seem to be sharper. I have always took photos of the nearly full moon. I think I'll photograph it at various stages more often.
