Tonight I decided to try to take some shots of the moon at night. I waited until the evening and set up my camera with my 55-250mm lens, tripod, and remote shutter release. I aimed, auto focused, adn adjusted my aperture/shutter speed/iso to a variety of combinations until my light meter indicated a correctd exposure. While the moon was properly exposed in most of the shots, I had terrible focusing problems. No matter what I did, my moon turned out blurry, fuzzy, and look like they are glowing similar to how the sun looks during the days. I switched off of manual mode, being that i'm still a beginner, and on auto mode with no flash the moon was in nearly perfect focus. The auto settings were f5.6 and 1/60 shutter speed. When I was playing around with settings in manual mode I tried everything from an f-8.0 to an f36 and adjusted the shutter speed accordingly to get the exposure correct. I used ISO 400 in some and ISO 1600 in others to try to correct whatever my problem was. My shutter speeds ranged anywhere from 4 seconds to 30 seconds. I used both AF and MF and neither seemed to make any difference. So...what am I doing wrong?? Why is my moon not in focus in manual mode using MF? Did I need a faster shutter speed? Did I need a smaller f-stop?
