90°  The problem with taking a picture of the full Moon is that it is so bright that it’s almost impossible to get the features of the Moon without sacrificing any other subject matter. It’s a little like the Uncertainty Principle, which states that the more precisely you know the position of a particle, the less you know about its momentum and vice versa

In photography, the more the variance in light in the subject matter, the less detail you can capture of the subjects. When the Moon is low I prefer to pick up the features of the foreground at the cost of ‘burning out’ the Moon in the image.
