I shot this tonight iso 100 shutter 15 f stop.5.6
Try a shutter speed more around 1/125 and mount the camera on a tripod or other stable surface. The moon is actually quite bright.
thanks! i had it on a tripod
You can only expose the moon for 8 seconds at a time. If you expose for more than 8 seconds you will start to notice movement. I suggest a slightly smaller aperture also to cut back on the harshness of light. Try f/8 and work from there.
.... and it's fast too. Much below 1/125s motion blur starts to creep in because of the moons' speed of travel.
THIS ONE was shot at 1/125s, f/8, ISO200
Is f/5.6 your sharpest aperture?
Umm, according to the exif data, you actually shot that at ISO 100, F16 and 20sec exposure. Way too long. You actually need a very short exposure time for the moon.
Here's a short blogpost about shooting the moon: The Moon
Where are you getting that? My EXIF viewer's showing me 1/3"...
Yeah, was talking about op.
Kundalini 5.6 was lowest i could get it down to i dont know why it wouldnt let me go lower
You're backwards.... Lower is f/8 or f/16. You can't go *higher* than f/5.6 because you are zoomed all the way in. But that's ok, because you want to go lower.
