I first read that as a mass shooting.

/I blame all of the gun threads on Fark

What you did there, I sees it.

First, I seriously had no idea that the moon rose that quick, and I say that as someone who has spent time photographing/recording the moon, albeit on a much more amateur level than this guy.  I was quite amazed by how quickly it rose.

Secondly, anyone have any idea how this guy would have exposed for the shot before the moon appeared?

/Vid was awesome

The sound of one hand clapping: First, I seriously had no idea that the moon rose that quick, and I say that as someone who has spent time photographing/recording the moon, albeit on a much more amateur level than this guy.  I was quite amazed by how quickly it rose.

The guy who did the video was answering questions in the comments section on that site . . . if you ask him, he'll probably tell you.

I don't have a vimeo account and, well, what can I say, I'm too lazy to create one to find this out.

He does say in the description that it took a lot of trial and error, so I guess he'd narrowed down his exposure settings from previous attempts.

Also, I think the apparent speed of the moon rise is a parallax effect, because the people being silhouetted are 2.1km away from the camera.

Phil Plait wrote about this video, including the math on the speed of the moon rising.

Nono, the moon is a fast little bugger. I tried my hand at astrophotography and the only thing I have is the moon. Well, parts of it. Getting anything with a focal lenght of 5760 mm is a biatch. 400 mm lens with two 3x extenders and the crop factor from the camera... And boy, do they suck quality and brightness right out. And even with two tripods to hold that contraption, it is still shaky as hell. So kudos to the guys who make photos of other planets.

One of these days I will buy a smart phone with whatever app that shows what objects are in your field of view when you point it at the sky.

Nice, I live on the hill where this was shot. The moon reflecting on the bay here over the last couple of nights has been spectacular.

Would have been perfect if a kiwi or two had flown across the face of the moon.
