Photographing the Moon

While seemingly an easy sky target, correct exposure always seems to elude photographers. This lecture talks about exposing for the moon at different phases as well as the moon's size using different telephoto lenses and the implications of high magnification. Determining where and when the moon will rise or set is also included.
