I just bought a tripod so I decided I would try a couple pictures of the moon. It is pretty close to full right now and a clear night so I thought it would be the perfect oportunity to try this out. I set my Nikon D50 to long exposure settting and turned the ISO up to 800, and another shot at 1600. I tried shutter times between 3 and 30 seconds. I figured after about 10 shots I should get at least one good one, but not at all. Here is the best I got. It looks more like a dimmed sun than anything. My question is how is it possible to get the nice crisp looking moons one often sees, or is it at all possible to do with a DSLR? Thanks for the help.
