    Didn't have a tripod; used a phone-book and a table.

    Curious - why sepia?

    Not sepia; natural color above the horizon.

    Was it the real color of the moon (I've never seen one like that), or was it the camera's inability to set white balance?

    I'm not questioning your choice of color, just curious about the reason. Perhaps on the west coast we don't have the same cast in the sky. I've seen brown and red casts before, but they were in coal mining areas.

    Color reproduction was accurate.

    The camera reproduced what was visible.

    Surprised you have not seen that color before. We have it all of the time with the moon in the lower part of the horizon and the reflected light travels through more of the atmosphere and changes the color. Similar to the sun turning red at sunset.

    Longer light waves if I remember correctly.

    Yep, I have seen a really bright orange before and this color is pretty common. Last winter, I walked out of the welding shop at the college to see the biggest orangest moon ever. At first, I thought watching the arc all night had messed me up it was so orange. I would killed to have gotten a shot of that!

    And yes, I can weld :supergrin:

    Much better than my moon shots! :wavey:
