    Bored on a Friday night and just itching to post a photo but don't what it should be? Post a moon shot. I've found out if I start earlier, they don't seem quite so fuzzy. :D

    Go on.... you know you wanna do it................

    Great shot, this was the best i could get on Monday, taken with
    my old Nikon 70-300 f4-5-6 on its own. I've found its a bit soft
    at the 300 end, soon being replaced...

    lol.. i tried.
    Your guys' moon shots are AMAZING! Im jealous. I only had my 55-200mm on me.. and this was as close as i could get. The moon looked awesome in the storm clouds..so thought if try.

    Whats the trick to getting a super good, clean shot? ( aside from a longer range lens..lol --is 300 enough )


    Bump.

    You can't get decent results but aiming a lens at the moon and triggering the shutter.. Stack a 1 stop and a 2 stop ND filter in front of your glass. Use a 400 with a doubler, manual focus, fire some frames. You get the picture.. There is one I shot of the moon tonight on my blog.

    Honestly dont even like your shot, looks like something a scientist would like, but it just looks ugly, and also the last time i checked the moon wasnt blue.

    My shot was taken with a tripoded d90+180mm 2.8 AIs at either f/4 or 5.6.

    Ok, I appologize. I am on my cell phone and the quotes are confusing to make out. I thought I was. But sorry about that.
