This is the Largest and Brightest Moon of 2010, it was taken at 3:04 am central time. It's at 221,577k miles away, give or take a few feet :) , the closest it will ever get to earth... The other moon pics on this page were 2009's largest. I only had a 280mm lens this time, that's why this one is a smaller photo, the others were shot at 420mm. These were shot free hand, which just shows you how amazing nikon is at night:) Stat's on this photo are F - 7.1, 1/400th, iso 200, & 280mm for all you photog's out there!!! I'm still amazed that I can take this pic from my front porch with a little tiny camera:) Just Amazing!!! This is Also a lot clearer than last years due to the fact that there were no clouds in the sky!!!
