    I just got my new camera Tuesday. So far, I'm in love. Here are a few moon pictures.

    I don't have a tripod yet so I have been balancing the camera on my bike.

    There was a clear moonbow effect but it didn't show in any of the images.

    Reflection is from a street light.

    I think you'll notice a marked improvement when you get a tripod.....also consider a remote shutter release (quite cheap). I'm looking forward to some nice clear Autumn/ Winter nights so I can try out my new lens on lunar shots.

    Yeah, at this period in time I'm just happy to be able to take pictures at night, LOL.

    Do you have recommendations for either? Preferably of the not too pricey type? :allteeth: If it matters, I'm using a Nikon P600. Not a DSLR, not yet.

    Not really...I know I bought a very cheap tripod ages ago...its a bit flimsy, but does the job for this sort of application. I use a standard Nikon remote shutter release I think it cost me about £25, I know the cable ones are a lot cheaper.

    I keep reading that the cheaper tripods wobble and fall. If you had found one that didn't, that would have been nice! :)
