It was a welcome break from Coronavirus Stay at Home confinement as a super “pink moon” rose in the sky Tuesday night. So I opened my back door and photographed it from our sunroom. It was the largest supermoon of 2020. This full moon coincided with the lunar perigee — the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit, which gives it the appearance of being bigger. When it became a full moon at 10:35 p.m. ET Tuesday, it was just 221,851 miles away from Earth. Despite the name, the moon won’t actually turn pink. The name is linked to the spring season and a wildflower native to North America called moss phlox that blossoms in beautiful pink colors. The Featured Image, was shot with a Canon R with a Tamron 150-600mm lens with a Sigma 2X Teleconverter for a final focal length of 1200mm. I then cropped into the image to fill the frame more. I then switched to a Canon 7D with a 1.6x crop factor so the Field of View was 1920mm with the same lens & teleconverter. The image below was with the 7D and is the full uncropped image. On my monitor the Canon R, even cropped into somewhat, has much more detail, but then again it is a 30 megapixel sensor. These are downsized images here for the blog so the detail difference is not as apparent.
