Shooting the moon has been a little obsession of mine for a very long time, in fact ever since I started photography. I guess it is my love of impossible images, science fiction and science fact that drove me to want to take photographs of the moon.
I tried a few things using the gear that I have collected over the years. Sadly, neither zoom lenses nor telephoto lenses ever really resulted in a clear picture of the moon.
I got the Picamera! Now don’t laugh, this 5 megapixel wonder has a trick up its sleeve! You can remove the lens and expose light directly to the sensor – and if you happen to have access to a 3D printer, you can make a Canon EOS lens mount for the Picamera!
