Shots from the last two nights of the much-vaunted Supermoon 2013.

I borrowed my uncle’s AF NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 ED VR for these two shots. It is a slow telephoto lens, taking a while to hunt through the range when on AF. It was still a fun lens to learn astrophotography on. I would love to do more like this during regular full moons, but I feel that other moons won’t be as fun to watch as this one.
Next supermoon is in 2015 or 2016, I believe. It gives me much time to practice!
