I would like to ask a question about the size of the moon from where we stand. Couples nights ago, while travelling at CTE, the moon was ultra big, I mean literally 2.5x the normal size. But when I reached around PIE exit, the moon shrunk to normal size. Why?

Also I have seen in 2 evenings, the sun was ultra big too (I mean huge) orange ball. Is it because of atmospheric gas or vapour?

Great shot! :thumbsup:

Do you set this up on a very sturdy tripod?
My Slik sprint pro wobbles even at the flip of the DSLR mirror when I mount a 400mm. :(

I am using Gitzo 5541Ls, I am not sure about Slik but there should be some weight limit so check what maximum weight it can take. You can see my setting in picture, can try using same setting.

Ha...ha... I am very sure I am way off the loading limit of my tripod. Just that I don't have any better one lying around in the house.

Thanks for the info.
