I went to take a photo…..

I went to take a photo of Orion’s Belt with a Tamron 200-500mm lens that I bought used yesterday.  I set the camera on the tripod and used a remote to take the photo.  I had the camera set at 200 ISO 5′ f5.  All I could see with the naked eye were the three stars of the belt and the one below the left star.  Boy was I amazed at what was hidden to me, but not the camera.

So then I decided to take a photo of the moon with the lens set at 500mm.  Even on a tripod and using a remote shutter switch, the slight breeze caused a little blurring.

Why is it that even closing in on 60 years of age I am still amazed at things I have seen so many times before?
