    Very nice! My only slight comment is maybe you could sharpen them up just a bit in Photoshop or Gimp? Very nice and detailed though, good work!

    Ironic though, I took my first moon shots just this morning. Haven't even taken them off of the camera yet!

    I guess it would depend on the version you have, I have CS3 Extended (the newest version) but there should be a filters menu, and under that there will be a sharpen submenu. Just play with the stuff in there, and it should (might!) help out. Don't overdo it though, too much sharpening can ruin a perfectly good image.

    And yes, considering those are hand held shots, they are excellent. Does your setup include vibration reduction lens of any sort?

    Then even better! Haha. I used the 55-200mm Nikkor with VR on my shots this morning, but I had VR on. I was using a quick enough shutter speed that it MAY not have mattered, but it definitely helped stabilize the image view to line up the shot appropriately.

    what kind of lenses is everyone using for moon shots? I have the 55-200 VR and it seems to not have near enough zoom for good moon shots
