    well i went and bought my new lens... Nikon 70-300 VR and as it was 10pm when i bought it, its too late to shoot much :(

    so i lifted the camera and took 3 shots of the moon...as you do, its not even a clear night really but it doesnt look half bad :)

    It's pretty good, and I have a noob question: do you need a filter to take a photo of the moon?

    Yea, but that picture is a crop.

    and it was using a 300mm X2 (600mm) that also helps :)

    answer to the second question- no, you dont need a filter, its probably easier without one because you can keep the iso down, and shutter speed fast. if you have any money laying around you may want to invest in a telescope, then you can take even better photos of the moon with higher clarity. I'm going to be blatantly honest here. I think its OK, but seems to be lacking a lot of sharpness except for the lower craters, so it doesnt really wow me like everyone else. I've sort of been into astrophotography for a couple years now though, so i've seen some truely impressive photos , but this isnt too bad for a first shot. keep it up and maybe try stacking frames and see if you get any more detail out of it.

    Moracca it's recommended you start another thread for your own images, to prevent hijacking of other people's threads. :)
