Full moon

11 posts in this topic

Hope some of you guys take some pics - if it isn't too cloudy. Something like 14% bigger and 30% brighter than the norm.

I won't have a chance (another shoot and it clouded up here) I suggest anyone trying to shoot it get going before it gets too dark out. Tough to get the right exposure with a bright moon and a black sky!

Is there somewhere clear? The satellite shot shows you would have to be from Missouri to get the shot tonight. In fact it is snowing lightly in the mighty metro! Some BB tonight Ken? I've got two.

It was clear this morning, and the moon was starting to set into a beautiful sky that graded from blue to purple to red, not long before sunrise, but I got busy with other photo things and by the time I was ready to shoot the moon, the moon was shot! gringrin

And now that it's full tonight, it's cloudy, and it's supposed to stay cloudy for the next few days. frownfrown

The moon is leaving slowly. Is drifting away from the earth at the rate of 1 inch a year. The earth will be a different place when its gone. The list of changes is long but right at the top is the lose of tides. you don't have to run right and wave goodby, its going to be around for a long long time

I'm glad someone got the photo eyeguy. Really nice. It was cloudy here, but there were still some nice views of the moon on a long walk with the dog.

    • The resharpening doesn't kill my vibe towards the K-drill over the Nils. Babying things aren't part of the average consumers mindset. Durability is what they want.    I'm still on the hunt for an electric version that will suit my newly adapted way of fishing. If I can drill 20 holes in a day I'll be as happy as a fat kid at a cake eating contest. 
    • Oh go back to the Hey eyeguy BBQ post and bug BigDave!
    • Because your usual response is to demand whether I support this of that from some politician or what you claim is "my party", to try to deflect and obfuscicate.   Nobody can make you do anything here, but if you are prescribing policy it seems like you should be able to defend it with facts.
    • You must buy it.... I know you don't catch them!!!
    • I'll have to wait till I find a fresh road kill!! A plug your pie hole ding dong!
    • Hey don't get me involved in your frivolous hokus pokus!
    • Fun fact, CO alarms actually won't go off until 70 ppm is reach over 60 minutes. I believe this stems from Chicago FD responding to too many false CO calls. Law was passed to increase the level of exposure to lower emergency calls. Sofia's law is challenging this on boats and trying to mandate low level CO detectors be installed...I believe the incident happened at much less.That said MN is the first state to require CO detectors on boats with cabins.   Get a CO detector that displays an actual reading or better yet, find a low level CO monitor.   CO has a half life of around 4 hours...meaning if u get exposed with a level of say 20, going outside a few minutes won't help much espically if you go back into your infected fishouse....after 4 hrs of fresh air you'll be down to 10...hence the importance of the CO monitor and not just thinking going outside once an hour is doing much good if u have a leak.   That story made headlines but there was another bad CO incident that happened that same week regarding an ice fisherman...who also did not have a CO detector.
    • Nils extensions go on the bottom of the auger and have the helical.  You remove the blade and put the extension on.  They are made for all models of Nils.   Yes of coarse I've used a Milwaukee Fuel with an 8" Nils and posted video.  Less torque, faster,  but most importantly better battery life using the Nils.   . Yes they weigh a pound or two more then the KDrill because they aren't made from plastic.    If this comes down to blades well let's go there then. Kdrill has free sharpening but takes 3 weeks.   Did you know the material taken off that type blade and mount means less bite and therefore can never cut like new.  That is also why it is up to thier discretion if your blade can be sharpened.   A Nils head is blade and mount and can be adjusted after sharpening to cut as new.   So a nick that would ruin the KDrill blades can be removed from the Nils and still cut like it was intended to. I recently repaired a Nils blade that was used to dig post holes. My point is a Nils should serve its owner for a very long time. In 10 years I've dulled one Nils blade and that was from drilling into some buried trash left on the ice.
