I took photos of the moon with a halo, and with the planet Jupiter shining bright within the halo. I was disappointed that I saw some lens flares in some of the photos, perhaps due to the very bright moon's reflection of the Sun's rays. Modern lenses have multi-elements glasses inside. We tried adjusting the center position of the camera, avoiding the direct focus on the moon in some of the shots, so that the flares would have minimal impact.
Here is an example of lens flare ruining an image of the near or full moon. The full moon will be on January 18, 2014.
All photos taken handheld, with the Canon SX50HS superzoom camera.
