one more tonight

Just because insomnia is trying to be my BFF lately, and because I thought some of you might be interested in seeing this. If not, carry on about your business…

Remember that moon shot from the other night? Um…like last night? Because, you know, that was so long ago that you might have forgotten. Anyway, here it is again cropped in close so you can see the detail:

See how fuzzy it is in a lot of places? Look especially at the right side. Click on it and you can see it even better.

Well, tonight I went out and tried again, changing up my settings like my friend Amy recommended in a comment. Now look at this one:

SO much better. Look at that right side again and you can see all the craters. Plus it’s a much lovelier color, I think. The first one was taken with a tripod, the second was hand-held. Both of these are straight out of the camera, no sharpening or adjustments of any kind other than converting from RAW–the image posted the other day had some sharpening done, but I wanted to be able to compare apples to apples…or moons to moons, as it were. Pretty cool, yes?

Sometimes it’s good to have a creepy know-it-all for a friend.

Now I’m going to try to go to bed.
