“Super” because the moon is close. “Blood” because of the eclipse. “Wolf” just because the January full moon is called a wolf moon. Some icy clouds so I wasn’t too optimistic but it turned out OK. The clock on my camera was about 20 minutes fast so the image time stamps are a little off. Images are shrunk to 1024 on the long side. Most with the Canon 60D & Sigma 18-250mm.
Here’s a good example of “crop factor” based on sensor size.The above image was taken with a Canon 60D, which has an APS-C sensor, and a 250mm lens. Because the sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film (“full frame”), the angle of view is narrower. For Canon APS-C, the factor is 1.6. You don’t magically get a longer zoom but the field of view is equivalent to the length of the lens times the crop factor. In this case, 250mm X 1.6 = 400mm.
Both images were resized to 1024 but no cropping. The size of the moon is the same for full frame at 400mm and an APS-C sensor at 250mm.
Back to the moon…
I tried a Canon 2X teleconverter with the Kiron lens on the Sony for a total of 800mm.
I even tried a Kiron 2x converter stacked with the Canon 2X converter and the 400mm lens. It worked but the loss of light from the converters, the not-quite-perfect alignment of the converters+lens, and wobbliness of trying to aim something that long on a small tripod (while freezing) wasn’t worth it. The black spot is dust I got on the sensor while dorking around with converters with numb hands. You can see green chromatic aberration at the top of the moon.
