Really stunning pics Kaapsedraai! :thumbs_up:
We tried to see the moon rise but the horizon was so hazy it was a wasted effort but did see it some time later when it had risen further.

14 November 2016 - SUPER Moon
You might be interested how the Super Moon looked like from our side of the Africa-continent here in Cape Town.
Image

Image

This was taken from my home and if you are perhaps interested in the camera settings, here we go:
I have experimented with 2 types of settings i.e. TV-mode and Manual-mode, but the best was the Manual-mode.
Mode: Manual
F-stop: f/8 (this was the 'lowest' I was allowed to go)
Exposure time: 1/640 sec.
ISO: 640 (the first photo's ISO was 1600 which picked up a lot of grain)
Focal length: 400 mm
I rested the camera on my bean bag for best stabilisation.

Trust this could be of help. :thumbs_up: :D[/quote]

In a cloudy Jhb seeing the moon was challenging enough, photographing it was interesting! Finally there was a gap in the clouds, but by then it was already quite high.
