Better, Not Great

Having learned some sort of lesson yesterday, tonight when I went out to walk I took the “big” camera with me, the Canon DSLR with the 75-300mm zoom lens.

The moon, as expected, had moved higher in the sky, away from Mercury, and was now near bright Jupiter.

Tonight’s lesson – a much better camera is much better, especially with a nice zoom lens.

What would be even better yet would be that nice camera with a real zoom lens and a tripod.

On the other hand, a two-mile stroll with a three-pound camera is more work than one without, so I don’t know if I would actually want to walk while carrying the tripod as well. It could be awkward.
