Here in India, around Feb (not really sure, I am very poor with dates....) the moon was going to appear reddish. So, I decided to photograph it. I have never really photographed the night sky, so was a complete novice there. I made these observations:
When I used a shutter-speed of around 1/200 seconds to 1/160 seconds, the moon looked pretty red.
Coming to 1/80 to 1/125 seconds, it looked more towards yellow.
At 1/30 seconds, it looked perfectly white with the craters visible.
At speeds longer than 1/30 seconds, the details were lost, and at over 1/4 seconds, it just became a pure white bulb-like sphere with a seemingly smooth surface.
Is the hue of the moon related to shutter speed in any way? I haven't found an explanation to this yet. And obviously and most importantly, the WB and colour effects, all were default. Even ISO was kept at 80, which is the minimum. I suspect the yellowish tinge in the colour of the moon might be related to the shutter. But, I would gladly like to know how!
