Moon and Sun at Pigeon Point Lighthouse.

Moon and Sun at Pigeon Point Lighthouse. - student project

Wanted to get a crescent moon with Pigeon Point Lighthouse in the picture.  Using TPE I set up the shot and waited for the moon to come into the frame.  Got focus and then switched to manual focus and shot a series of shots of the moon dropping through the frame.  This was a fun project and I like how it turned out. The Photographers Ephemeris class gives you all the tools you will need to make this shot.  Also you need to be on a tripod.

Got there early and got the sun and lighthouse.  Both these shots were less than 2 hours and 20 feet apart from each other.
