    So here we go: a clear evening brought us a full moon which I tried to capture with my little compact digital camera when it had barely come above the roofs of our neighbours' houses.

    This is a CROP.
    In the original, there is only one little white blob. That is supposed to be the moon. The photo contains so little additional information that Photobucket left it all un-reduced and it's still got only 147k... so it would burst the borders of this board at the seams.

    But for the first time I am so-so --- erm --- reasonably, sort of ... erm, happy with "my" moon ;). I don't think this camera and lens will ever give me anything better.

    :thumbup: It's actually quite good! Auto Compacts usually over expose the moon and turn it into a glowing white blob!:lol:


    I'll bet you're dying to get a new SLR by now!:hug::

    Well, I told my camera NOT to!
    It would have done so had I left it on AUTOMATIC.
    But... erm... quick (?) learner who I am... I said, Listen, camera, NO white blob. Not for THIS one.

    I will now start a new thread on "Silvery Light" where I allowed my camera to make this very (tonight's!) moon a big, SHINING white blob so I'd get some of the silvery lit countryside. Stay tuned. :D
