Photography info

Use zoom mode for photograph of crescent moon and star, as the distance is great between them and earth. Further as they are relatively moving at a high speed the image gets blurred if we use lower shutter speeds. Digital cameras give better adjustments and images. Hence to get proper exposure higher aperture opening is preferred. This is best achieved on a cloudless and fog less night. In very rare occasions this type of photography is possible as very often clouds interfere.
Important info: You have to get away from the city to reduce the glare from city night lights.
