day MOON

This was shot today March 22 around 6:30pm.  I really love when the sky is still blue and the moon is 100% visible.

I also never get sick of taking pictures of the moon!!!!

Last night my husband gave me my Hanukkah present. A Canon 5d mark iii. Tonight I took 2 pictures of the moon. One with the full frame Canon 5d mark iii and one with the crop sensor Canon 60d.  Can you tell the difference?

I decided to compare the pictures.  The settings are different because I didn’t shoot them at the same time.

Would have reshot, but the moon went away.  Click on the picture to view it full size.
