About the Event

The moon will rise above the mountains to the east of Purgatory around 6:10PM.   We will leave the parking lot of Pioneer Park at 5pm.  We will drive to Purgatory Resort parking lot and find our shooting locations.  Golden hour starts at 5:23pm and blue hour starts at 6:14pm.  We should be done by 6:45 or so and will then drive back to Pioneer Park carpool location.  The azimuth of the moon will be ~78 degrees.  

Please remember this is not a workshop with instructors.  The purpose of this outing is to practice.  If you are new to photographing the moon, here's a good article on how to photograph the moon.  Please come with a plan of how you are going to shoot the moon and be prepared to experiment as needed.
