    Wow awesome shot! Maybe you should raise the contrast and brightness a bit because the moon is usually a little lighter. Its awesome how you got so much detail out of it though!

    Wow that's great. The moon was nice and full here tonight. I keep kicking myself for not getting some pics than I could add it to my night shot pics..it's just too cold out.

    I like that better but good job on the original shot. I've tried shooting the moon with my Fujifilm S700 but the 63 mm (380 mm equivalent on a 35 mm camera) isn't quite enough reach to fill the frame like done here.

    Here's what mine looked like at full crop (at maximum focal length):

    Once cropped, you can still see some detail but not nearly as much as in your's...

    I shot at iso 400, 1000/1 shutter speed, f8(for a full moon). Just a nice starting point for a digital camera. Also early twighlight is the best time i find. Using my 75-300mm lens.

    Hi all,

    Those are some great moon shot. I have attached a moon shot that I took last summer with a lens I rented. Enjoy, C&C welcome.

    The picture really looks great either way. Its just awesome how close you got to it with a regular camera! I hope you don't mind but I really liked your picture so I made it into a new planet! I was thinking about putting a bigger glow around it to make it look a little different. It basically looks like the moon in blue... but thats ok I guess :D.

    Nice shot. I would suggest a slightly longer exposure in the future, by a factor of about 25-50% (based upon the Levels).
