    No, I didn't get a tripod yet. I have been searching for one I really like. I am looking at the table top tripods for now.


    I was able to get one steady photo with the camera against my chest. I shot this one at 1/40/F8.0, I used the manual focus which I only half pressed my shutter button to lock in on the focus then it took this beautiful photo. I mean, I know that it could be better but that will come with more pratice.

    I do appreciate everyones help. I would of never got a shot like this.

    It's pretty good for handheld. But still not nearly as focused as it could be. Movement blur is quite visible. Moonshots with long tele lenses demand support. The laws of physics. Get a tripod or a beanbag. Then do it again (use the selftimer) with support. Be amazed at the difference!

    what sort of camera are you operating with? i tried a moon shot but my measly 3x zoom didnt enlarge it nearly enough.

    I just bought a Canon S2 IS. I love this camera. It has a 12x optical zoom.

    Much better than your first try! I think that if you got it steady on a tripod, you'll be able to get a better shot than that sample on Amazon (or whatever site that was).
