Additionally, he recommends adjusting for the right light balance with your phone's camera settings, saying. "Tap the screen and hold your finger on the object (in this case, the moon) to lock the focus. Then slide your finger up or down to darken or lighten the exposure."
For DSLR camera users, be careful with white balance and long lenses
Ingalls explained that he uses a daylight white balance setting for photographing the moon due to the sunlight it reflects. If you're using a DSLR camera with a longer lens, here's what he recommends:
"Keep in mind that the moon is a moving object," he said. "It’s a balancing act between trying to get the right exposure and realizing that the shutter speed typically needs to be a lot faster."
Of course, timing is also a key part of getting a killer shot of the supermoon. According to NASA, the moon will be at its closest point to Earth at 6:22am EST on Monday, November 14th, but viewing the supermoon will be excellent after sunset on both Sunday, November 13th and Monday, the 14th, after sunset. There will only be a "subtle difference" in how big and bright the moon appears, the space agency said.
