Where’s the Moon?

So tonight the moon is supposed to be very close to us.  And tonight something new arrived so I can actually attempt to zoom in to take better moon, and etc. photos.  But do you think the sky is cooperating?  Nope.  And do you think my new arrival’s battery was ready during the daylight hours?  Nope.  So I had to christen it in the complete darkness, and I don’t think it did that bad, for no flash and no tripod.  I won’t be able to sleep tonight thinking about the possibilities for photos I can take tomorrow.  And no, I haven’t gone the route of a DSLR, yet.  No DSLR because I’m too lazy to cart it around.  And lots of reasons for the camera I chose:  My SONY Cybershot doesn’t zoom in enough; somebody dropped the poor SONY Cybershot and it hasn’t taken crystal clear photos since; and it can’t fit the buildings I want to photograph in one photo.

The very first photo, taken with my new arrival:

The second photo, which really needed a tripod, because it’s very blurry, but it shows the clouds:

The third photo, another blurry one, but I *love* the way this camera sucks up the light in auto mode. I can’t wait to dig into the other modes:

And take photos during the daytime.
