    Definitely! Lots of fun to be had down Fingal way. Looks like a great location.

    It's meant to be 11 degrees on Sunday night, so that should mean it's pretty cloudless.

    Ah dammit, missed this thread.

    If the burger shop is still there at the caravan park, get the works, best burger I've had on the coast, probably wouldn't get the health inspector tick but ha ha!

    Thanks for the mention ApathyGates :)

    It's moon rise around sunset so could be sweet depending on the location. It looks pretty clear here in Brisbane today so hopefully clouds won't impede the rise. I might head out this afternoon, just depends what a mate is doing. I have to be back by 8pm for something so that puts a dampener on it. Nice clear night skies for start trails the last few nights!

    Popped my head out the door just 5 mins ago.
    Not really fuss worthy.

    Moon is bright yes, a shade yellow, but no where near as large as it gets when its low on the horizon (Atmospheric Lensing FTW) nor as red.

    Twelve million people ontop of Mt Coot-Tha with 550D/600D/D3100/D5100s and 55-250mm kit lenses and $20 tripods.

    :o

    Nothing was really working for me, mt coot-tha is a tough location at the best of times framing wise... and especially when you need to meter twice

    We'll see what we get....

    I was almost going to head up to Mount Cootha....glad i didn't. I think if you had an 800mm lens it would have been good.
