    I know there are a 1000 shots of teh moon but this is the first I have got. I have been tring for a while to get a shot of the moon. The more I shoot the less I know this was taking at f11 and 1250 sec. It is the same shot I just cropped it two ways.

    This one is at f11 and 900sec. I like it more but would not crop anymore.

    Yeah nice. I can't get anywhere near that definition - I know, I've tried.

    that is a very sharp picture. Where you in a desert and high in elevation? The last is my fav, as it composed different than other moon shoots.

    they are beautiful. the last shot looks like it shows more detail, but its hard to see because it looks so tiny (to me at least)

    Good shots! Surprising amount of detail for a full moon. You usually get much better results shooting a half or gibbous moon--there are more shadows and such.

    Amazing how friggin bright the moon is, huh? The first moon shots I took I tried manually setting stuff, figuring I'd need several seconds of exposure. Ended up with a couple dozen bright white balls. :LOL: You gotta expose fast to get a good moon shot.

    Good crisp shots. I've tried several times but have not got quite that sharp yet.
