I wonder how big of a lens you'll need to make it a super moon

I plan to be out if it's not cloudy, so expect another boring signal photo

I think you'd need your head checked if you go to McD's for the burgers. In Canada, you go to Harvey's for a burger.

I have a McDouble occasionally at McD's and I think they are delicious. Perhaps it's not exactly the best representation of a hamburger, but for what it is, it sure does taste good! (and it's only a dollar)

Just tried a Supermoon Friday night preview. It's very nice out. Only problem is I am in Scranton and if I'm here, there is only overcast!

Cool

So I waited a day and this was the result.

To return the heads up favor, here is another heavenly body occurrence:

To avoid eye damage, use Live View. But I do not know if this can damage our digital cameras.

Stay tuned.
