Anyone photograph the "super blue moon"?

Playing with manual mode on my Nikon D7500 with a Tamron zoom lens.

Felt I captured the moon pretty well!

Nice shot. Tripod? What were your settings and ISO?

Honestly don’t think you can get close with an iPhone, if so, probably some third party software? I’m sure it’s possible, but I have no idea.

Thank you!
No tripod, just point and shoot!

I will check my settings when I’m back with my camera (I was playing around with ISO anywhere between 100-320 and f stop between 5.6 and 8).

Nikon D7500 with a Tamron zoom lens (70-300). Full zoom, and I want to say ISO 320, f6.3

Not my shot (duh but damn cool!

A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) captured a unique view of the Moon as it passed between the spacecraft and Earth. A series of test images shows the fully illuminated “dark side” of the Moon that is not visible from Earth.

In my experience the iPhone camera can't handle the contrast difference of a dark sky and very bright moon. Lens/lens cover flare is one issue, lens and sensor resolution are another issue.

If you use a Samsung phone you will get a perfect moon shot every time.

That’s fair… but I can’t get used to the clunky android UI (in my opinion), nor losing iMessage and the apple ecosystem. Too many cons outweigh the benefit of a slightly better camera (where if I’m really being serious, I’d just grab my DSLR anyways).

I imagine with a tripod/stabilization setup and some tinkering, the iPhone can capture a photo nearly as well, too.

lol; that article is “proving” they aren’t fake though, right? But I guess “every time” is a huge stretch

I feel like in general, the Samsung cameras are slightly better “out of the box” than the iPhone cameras, although with proper equipment, both can do phenomenal work for phone cameras.

OP, nice shot fellow D7500 shooter!

I shot this handheld with my D7500 with an old Sigma 70-300 @ 300mm (450mm with APS-C crop), 1/1600, f5.6, iso 200 on 27 September 2023.

Another I took around 7 in the morning in February 2023. I called it "Reaching for the morning moonset".

Nikon D7500, Nikkor 18-200 VRII @ 200mm, Manual mode, 1/160, f5.6, ISO100. If I remember correctly this was on a tripod in my driveway on a timer. I prefer this shot over the other I posted by a wide margin.

I've taken a few pictures of super moons and they have all turned out well but I prefer a crescent moon. The details seem to show better. This is from yesterday, April 13th. A Waxing crescent moon, 30.0%, hand held, VR helps. Seattle/Tacoma
