    To get moon shot I typically use spot metering , and I end up with a shutter speed of 1/500, f 5.6, ISO 800, 300mm focal length.

    The moon is very bright, and tricky to expose properly - this is one of those times I use manual settings.

    200mm - 1/250th - f/16 - 400 ISO

    I took THIS MOON SHOT a couple of years ago. I only bring it up because I mentioned my settings AND there are some comments further down by Arch on post processing.
