that is just fine for a moon illuminated by the sun. It is an altogether different story during a total lunar eclipse when it becomes very much dimmer.

Very strange image of the moon. Perhaps with a red filter and then something else?

Try this link, sorry. The image was from the article, not my image.

For what it’s worth my anecdotal experience

Super Blood Wolf Moon Total eclipse
Canon 6D MK II.
Taken in raw format
100-400 L at 400mm
ISO 1600. 2 seconds. f8. White balance 5100k
Live view remotely controlled and adjusted with iPhone paired to camera
Manual focus and sturdy tripod.
Camera set outside 3 hrs before to acclimate to 25 degrees f

If you do Double download you will see I made a mistake or two here with these settings. It was my first attempt. The key mistake was using a 2 second exposure which yielded slight star trails and a slightly blurred moon. I subsequently learned I should have used a one second max exposure at least at 400mm.
You live and learn.

BTW this is a low resolution photograph sized for social media

I get more of a sense of its just floating there

To those at home. It is highly unlikely your moon will appear that red. Just like your trees won't be that green.

Actually this is not all that informative an article as to the photography end of things.

Please share your settings and show us your best shot of the moon as your previous shot was a landscape with the moon only taking a very small part of the frame. Very nice image though.

Shutter Speed: The moon is moving across the sky at about 2300mph at a distance of about 239,000 miles (385,000km). Many of the best practices articles say a bare minimum shutter speed of 1/125. I choose to shoot faster to minimize camera shake, which can come from the mirror movement on a dslr, gentle breeze pushing on your telephoto lens hood, or just someone walking around next to your tripod. Any shake at all will be amplified with a heavy crop. BTW, use metal spikes on your tripod if you are in grass or even rocky soil and use a remote trigger or your camera's timer.
F stop: It is not necessary to select the f stop for DOF as the DOF for a 600mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter is at 5500m to infinity. I like to go down one stop as most glass is sharper closed down about a stop. So for my 600mm with 1.4x, I end up at f/8. Of course it is critical to achieve good focus, especially when you are using a deep crop, that's why I shoot in Live View on my dslrs (contrast detection AF), but that's not necessary on a mirrorless camera, which has a mixture of phase detection and contrast detection sensors built into the imaging sensor.
ISO: It is what it is. For a bright moon ISO is not an issue, but for the upcoming eclipse, it will be. I will figure it out along the way. I use the histograms in Live View to help set ISO. Don't worry about noise in the black sky as you can bury it in pure black during Post.

This was taken with a D500 (extra 1.5x crop factor), 600mm f/4G with 1.4x III tele (effective 1260mm) at 1/1000s, F/8, ISO 900.

Well .., just a D7200 and a Nikon 200-500 5.6 equiv 750mm hand held not braced ..ISO 3200 f5.6 1/8000 and the image is well IMHO a equal or little better …, my point is .., there are many ways a photographer can get a great shot ..

From May, 2021. 135mm lense. 2 secs, f3.5 iso 800

Note, this was about an hour before dawn, so first little bit of ambient light in sky.


So nice …!
