NAB cancelled, NBA postponed, travel plans put in disarray! Might as well talk about the moon, at least most of us can still see that most nights. Canon 5DsR, 100-400L MK I, 2X TC on tripod, focused in live view and mirror-up, 1 sec delay. March9, 2020.

I haven't done this before. On March 4th I managed to get a shot of a half moon during the day and night. The day shot was with my 5DS R, 100-400L with 1.4 TC and hand held. The night shot was with 5DS R, 100-400L with 2x TC on a tripod.

Hi Steve. I am sorry to say my interest in the stars does not extend much beyond " Oh look, there's the Big Dipper". :(

Fair enough...though a good second step is Orion (and the constellations around it), which are loaded with bright stars whose names might even be recognizable.

In any case, I was just trying to make a "corona" reference in honor of our recent troubles.
