I was lucky enough to see a halo moon the other night, however the pics that i took on the camera are nicer then what came out on my screen. unfortunately, i had a number of things working against me, A) the moon was directly over head, and my lens wasn't wide enough to capture the whole thing. B) the moon is completely blown out, but with a lower shutter speed, you also lose the halo effect. C) i only had access to my point and shoot, would control of f-stop made a difference? how could i have done this better, in regards to settings etc. i don't own any filters, but would one of them made a difference? i'd have loved to get more detail in the moon as well as have a brilliant ring. settings used: f2.8, 37mm (as wide as it goes), 10seconds, taken on a flexi tripod. faster shutters (5", 4", 3" and 1") resulted in less ring detail but less "flare" from the moon also (the moon is smaller looking), but don't show any extra detail in the moon itself. THANKS!
