I’ve colour adjusted the two moons, and cropped them and laid them side by side for comparison.
Aside from the phases — my best moon is a gibbous moon, and the super moon is full — they don’t look all that different, size wise.
To some degree it may be because of the different angle of the sunlight on the gibbous moon photograph; the shadows cast are sharply defined, but , but I am a little disappointed that my super moon doesn’t seem to be focused as sharply. So much for tripods and auto focus.
I’ve colour adjusted the two moons, and cropped them and stacked them for comparison. Turns out that the image of the full super moon *is* actually larger.
[Although I hadn’t planned on doing anything like this last September when I photographed my best moon, it’s a given that any photographs of the moon would be done using full zoom.]
I’m particularly interested in the moon these days, as I’m planning to redesign the cover of the print version of my novel … this is my previous “best moon” photograph, which I used for the “Inconstant Moon" eBook cover art. I’d previously posted a cropped tarted up (cropped & colour adjusted) version of this photograph of my best moon here.
