Supermoon in Clouds (Nov 14, 2016).jpg
The well-publicized - if not overly publicized! - supermoon (a perigee Full Moon) of November 14, 2016, seen here about 3 degrees above the horizon, rising out of low clouds. The yellow colour is natural, and illuminated the field with a golden glow. However, this is a stack of 4 exposures, from long to short, to create an “HDR” style stack as the longest exposure needed for the clouds blew out the bright Moon. A short exposure was needed for the Moon itself. I took 4 exposures at about 2 stop increments from 1.5 seconds to 1/15 second and blended them not with HDR software but with luminosity masks using the ADP Panel+ scripts from Aaron Dowling Photography. All exposures with the Explore Scientific FCD100 apo refractor at f/7 and Nikon D750 at ISO 100.
