Photographing the moon in the sky is simple; figuring out where the moon will rise or set so that you can photograph it in a landscape can be a little tricky, but with the Photographer’s Ephemeris, it’s much easier than it has ever been before. This video shows you how to use it to locate the moonrise, or moonset, so that you can photograph it in a precise location, and you can plan your photography expeditions accordingly.
