Supermoon 27 April 2021

I am very happy tonight because I am able to watch supermoon at the frontyard of my house. Last month, I did moon watching but the weather was not so clear. It was raining. This month, which is tonight, the weather is very clear.

At around 19:30, I installed my spotting scope and invited anyone who was passing by to see it. I used a Kinglux 20-60×60 mm spotting scope but for taking picture, I used Canon 200D with Tamron telephoto lens 150 - 600 mm G2 lens.

Some of my friends, Yansen Saragih and his brother, Matias Rumbruren, came to watch the Super full moon. After that they enjoyed fried banana, hot tea, coffee, and instant noodle soup at the nearby Pasar Kaget (meaning: Surprised Market).

The moon watching activity lasted for a few hours and was finished at around 23.30.

Well, I plan to conduct moon watching again tomorrow night at the same place. And it will be open for anyone who passes by. 

The moon watching gear will still be the same:

  • Kinglux 20-60×60mm spotting scope
  • Visionking Binoculars 10×42 mm 
  • And for photographic device, I will use Canon 200D with Tamron telephoto lens.
  • Well, I will still use the camera of  my cellphone to take picture of the moon watching scene.
