Excellent shot. Looks like a picture from an astronomy book. Well done Bill


Comment by Mick on 25th November 2011 at 08:25
To me this is a photo of the night.


Comment by Frank Tunstall on 25th November 2011 at 09:52
Wow!


Comment by Dennis Forshaw on 25th November 2011 at 09:55
Great picture, Bill. I've tried to get shots of the moon with my camera but they always turn out blurred.


Comment by David Barker on 25th November 2011 at 10:18
I took the same photo on the 6th Bill it was very clear that night ,I used a 70-300mm lens tripod and remote shutter release,heres a link were I got my settings from http://mansurovs.com/how-to-photograph-moon nice shot.

This is about Wigan?


Comment by DIRTY HARRY on 25th November 2011 at 12:30
no freaking way is this a photograph.i have the same picture at home its from a nat geo magazine.and if you look really closely you can see moon base alpha in the top right hand corner.


Comment by Bill Eatock on 25th November 2011 at 12:40
I was surprised it turned out as well as it did. I had no tripod and took the photo on auto setting through the glass of a double glazed window. I used the cameras own built in 30x zoom lens.
Got to admit that bridge camera's aren't a patch on a proper SLR.

David Barker are you Rogers lad ?


Comment by Stargazer (Mike Cottam) on 25th November 2011 at 17:29
Moon is in the sky over Wigan from time to time Syd. So, I guess it counts as Wigan.
Besides, its a great photo and I reckon worth sharing.
Mind you I'm a bit prejudiced as I'm a keen astronomer!


Comment by Bill Eatock on 25th November 2011 at 17:38
Not from ANY magazine Dirty Harry, just snapped by little old me through back bedroom window.
Its easy to get a good shot of the moon with a modern camera. They do all the work themselves. Anti-shake, high power zoom, etc.
The Fuji can zoom into a flea on a dogs back from 100 yds!


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 25th November 2011 at 23:11
Good on you Bill!
Perhaps there are some jealous people about.


Comment by Ellen on 26th November 2011 at 06:58
I very much agree with Jean. Great shot Bill.


Comment by David Barker on 26th November 2011 at 11:56
No sorry nephro,must be another.


Comment by Lee Layland on 26th November 2011 at 15:26
I took the same picture, (See 14th February). To stop the photo's being blurred, use a tripod. Fuji superzooms are great for shots like these. For my shot I upgraded from the S5800 to the HS10, though even my old E500 still works and takes great photo's!


Comment by Lee Layland on 26th November 2011 at 18:46
Forgot to mention - to avoid shaking the camera when you're taking the photo use your camera's self timer. That way your hands are no where near when taking the photo a,d your less likely to 'wobble' the tripod.


Comment by Bill Eatock on 26th November 2011 at 22:07
Regarding the Fuji bridge cameras, Lee. Do you find that some of the photo's have a painted effect?
I also had this with the Fuji 2950.


Comment by Bill Eatock on 26th November 2011 at 22:09
Thanks to all of you for you comments. Wiganworld is the best thing since sliced bread!


Comment by Lee Layland on 27th November 2011 at 12:44
@Bill Eatock - can't say I've noticed - but I'm no expert. They do for what I use 'em for!


Comment by Tracey on 3rd May 2017 at 18:30
Lovely photo. My husband has the same model of camera. He takes some really professional looking shots with that bridge camera. Amazing results when one considers the price.(less than £100) I've been trying to get him to post some shots on Wiganworld. He mainly photographs wild-life.
