Christmas full moon

Larger version: http://www.asztrofoto.hu/galeria/img/1451079838.jpg

At that time, everybody eat the christmas dinner, but I decided to create a multiple exposure about the full moonrise.
A special christmas gift for our humanity, because the next christmas full moon will be observable 2034, so thats a rare sighting. And I are lucky, because the other parts of Hungary is very foggy that day.

I used Canon EOS6D with Canon 70-200 f4L USM lens: fix ISO800 and fix f8, various exposures.
Date: 2015. december 25. ~15:40 UT

A beautiful and rare sunset above Hungary. I observerd from the Zselic StarPark lookout tower. (Zselici Csillagpark) The 4. image contains the 2473 sunspots , which erupted today a powerful M1.9 class solar flare. The 5. image produced a green flash, and the 8. sun image looks too malformed.
We have a large inversion layer with 10°C difference

I used Canon EOS1000D with Admiral 400mm lens with 16f stop. This is a 9 picture montage - ISO100, 1/2500 sec

Apart from its unique geomorphology it is an ideal target for Winter Solstice photography. From this vista it spans 115 degrees across the southern horizon whereas the Sun covers 103 degrees from sunrise to sunset at this latitude during the shortest day of the year.

Five photos stacked during the whole day at 20/12/2015, two days before the Winter Solstice.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

That is a superbly executed image!! Well done and Merry Christmas to you too :D
