Obligatory Super Moon Picture

Taken with a tripod, manual exposure but, in the dark I didn’t record the settings, on a Fuji “too many controls” digital camera at “darn close” to the full moon moment. The image was cropped this morning and levels tweaked (well, “hammered” would be a better choice of terms) in Paint.Net, my favorite free image editing program. (Looks like I blew the focus. Or maybe, between enlargement in the camera and enlargement in Paint.Net, I’ve just run out of pixels. Regardless, it’s a done thing.)Here’s the EXIF data if you’re into that kind’a stuff (via http://regex.info/exif.cgi, HTML edited for clarity):
