Moonset Over Santa Rosa

I had a special treat this morning for my predawn walk - an eclipse shining over Santa Rosa. I had my Olympus PEN-F with the wonderful Olympus 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens that enabled me to capture a number of images handheld, wide open.

The exposure was 1/15th at f/1.2 with an ISO of 1600. In my rush to capture this moonscape, I had my file format set to Jpeg instead of RAW, something that I did not realize until I uploaded the files to the computer.

"Hey, where are the RAWs? Oh Snap!"

Fortunately, the Jpegs are pretty good on the PEN-F. And my manual exposure setting was accurate. So no real harm done. Just goes to show that photography at 6am does have its challenges.
