Moon path, how it was done

Taken with 5 minute intervals between each photograph. Then combined together in Photoshop to produce the final photograph.

The individual photographs were taken on a tripod with a 55 to 300mm lens. Once the camera was focused on the moon the auto focus was turned off.

Manual setting was selected on the camera with the ISO at 100. Next the shutter speed was set at 1/6 of a second as the moon is very bright and at F18.

So that the camera didn’t move during the taking of the individual shots a remote was used to trigger. The camera is positioned so the moon is in the bottom corner of the frame.

Each individual shot was then triggered by the remote every 5 minutes. The photographs were then loaded into Photoshop as individual layers and then combined using the multiply setting.

Hope you enjoyed the picture of the moon. Any questions list them in the comments below.
