This meetup is about taking pictures of the Coit Tower when the moon (full moon) is partly behind the Coit Tower.

Moonset 5:32am
Sunrise 5:46am

We meet on Treasure Island at 4:45am to have enough time to set-up the equipment and take a few pictures of the moon above the skyline before the moon "hits" the Coit Tower.

What to bring:
- DSLR camera
- sturdy tripod
- sand bags or stone bags to keep the tripod/camera from moving in case it will be windy
- wide angle and telezoom lens (focal length[masked]mm?)
- cable or remote release
- layered clothing. Expect it to be windy and turn foggy! It's San Francisco for heaven's sake

Note that this event is EARLY on a weekday morning . Weather may affect the visibility of the moon to the west over Coit tower.

Please check for road work before you leave home or the evening before: sometimes Caltrans is doing work at the off/on ramps of Treasure/Yerba Buena Island or closing lanes on the bridge.
