Fuji Finepix 4700 Moon Shoot Experiments
I tried three photos to see if I could get good
moon shots over Alabama.
The previous night's experiment, at midnight, showed the moon
to be too bright which washed out the details, the craters.
Shooting at dusk was better but not perfect.
The moon does light enough pixels that the shape of the
craters can be identified but
I need some way to trick the camera into thinking the
night is lighter than it really is.
These are the enhanced moon image and the original shot which has been shrunk
by 25% from the original image:
This experiment uses a circular image mask and
avoiding the "Instant Fix" from the Adobe Photoshop.
However, I'm still not satisfied with the image contrast
needed to identify the craters.
For this last experiment, I tried using the flash with a large
object in the foreground to fool the camera into making a faster snapshot.
