A reminder to our friends in the Astrophotography forum.
Our moon will be coming so close to Earth on Monday night (November 14) that it promises to be much larger in the night sky, and up to 30% brighter.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) tells us:
The full moon of November 14 is not only the closest full moon of 2016 but also the closest full moon to date in the 21st century. The full moon won't come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.

Silver member Bob Stanton (bobnd1) from Illinois, USA asks a question that many of us have seen in various forms for over 15 years.
He's got a new Nikon in mind, and is now researching lens options. The basic question may be familiar, but as technology improves and Nikon keeps pumping out new cameras and lenses, Bob's "old" question becomes a whole new topic.
Add the fact that we are constantly welcoming new members and it's time once again to discuss "Camera X and lens choices."

Nikonians Academy Director Mike Hagen is headed to Tanzania for his annual African Photo Safari. He has already scheduled the next Safari for November 2017.
Mike tells us:
We are limiting the size to 12 participants and this number includes your Tour Leader.
One of the best aspects of this trip is that we are only allowing three photographers per vehicle. This means that each person will have an entire row to themselves with one seat for their camera gear and the other seat for themselves.
There will be plenty of room to move around and everyone will have perfect access to all photo opportunities.
