If you want detail, do NOT shoot a full moon, as the lighting on the moon is pretty flat at that time. Shoot a 3/4 or half moon. That way there will be shadows you can pick up.
Thanks, I was wondering how you did that.
Edit: dang....no moon out tonight.
Go for it, Desi! Have fun.. post 'em up for us, too! (seems like there are little "tricks" to everything, right?) lol!
OK, I had to wait a few days for the moon to come out. Here's my shot. Definitely better that my earlier (unposted) attempts. Much better detail, but still nowhere near as sharp as Charlie's.
Shot at 300 mm, 1/250 sec, f9, iso 200. Tripod.
Why is mine so much less sharp? I'm using the nikkor 70-300 f4.5-5.6. Tripod with timer but shutter not locked.
