Default Super Moon on Yankee Hill

That was a great run tonight! After a little worry before we started when we thought that Bill's rear differential might be low on fluid, everything went off without a hitch. I had some flashbacks to chasing the Cumbres and Toltec there when we were making good time up the hill.

The road we descended on that was a bit narrow was new to me. Whoops

Here are a few of our photos: https://goo.gl/photos/9ETBzW7j3mhZHxRVA

I'll see about getting the rest uploaded later...

Some pics from tonight.

The wind and heat distortion made it impossible to get a sharp photo of the moon.

Canon 7DMII 600mm f4 and 600mm f4 with 1.4x teleconverter. (effective zoom 960mm and 1200mm respectively) ISO 100 F9.0 1/60th. I didn't bother with mirror lockup or cable release the wind was about 25-30mph.

Cheers!!
