Taking pictures of the moon behind a San Francisco Landmark.
Exact meeting location will be disclosed a few days before the event.
The area from where we'll take pictures of the moon will be the same for both days, 2/26 and 2/27.
The only difference is that on 2/27 the sun will be up already when the moon will be at the landmark.

Please sign up on waiting list! A lottery will be held on 2/21. This event is limited to 20.
You can sign up for both days but you will be set to RSVP yes for one day only.
If you have a preference which day you want to go please send me an email.

If you change to a "NO" status after 2/24 you are counted as a No-Show.  I'm tracking no Shows for this event. Guests are not permitted.

What to bring:
- camera, battery ..... backup camera, battery....
- sturdy tripod
- tele(zoom) lens (focal length at least 200mm)
- cable or remote release, intervalometer
- layered clothing. Expect it to be windy and very cold!

Note that this event is EARLY on a weekday morning . Weather may affect the visibility of the moon.

    It's good to see y'all early this AM with awesome moonset behind Golden Gate Bridge. Let's have another chance at the right time on moonset-Earth position behind SF landmark soon (hopefully, not too long).

    The secrecy and waitlisting were frustrating. Given the location, I'm not sure why it was necessary. Nonetheless, I'm glad I got to participate as the shot was quite nice. Just wish I had a 500mm lens. =]

      The waiting list is for the lottery because more people signed up than the event limit. The secrecy is to not have 100 people show up that read the meetup. The event was limited to 20 because I don't want to deal/have more than 20 people. You may also want to read here about the meetup: http://www.meetup.com...­
