Hi it was handheld ISO 100.. F/8... 1/200 SEC it was a bit soft so i put it through Topaz sharpen might have overcooked it a littleInteresting shot but you might have overdone it a bit with the processing. How did you take it if you don’t mind my asking?
Too late i deleted the originalYou’re right. Maybe try again because it looks as though it would be a pretty nice shot.
don't worry ... moon is not going away so you'll have a next opportunity in few weeksToo late i deleted the original
I dare to say that in theory you should rather open your glass because you want a speed and to catch the most available light .. DoF is not an issue with this kind of shot so f8 won't help to the shot, it will make a disservice instead ...Nice shot! You have some very steady hands to do that at ISO 100, F/8, and 1/200.
Had a lot of practice shooting the moon, have you? This is great information. Duly noted.I have never seen a shot of the moon look like that. I recommend using a tripod or stabilize your camera better and maybe try the "Looney 11 rule."
What Is The Looney 11 Rule? How To Use It To Shoot The MoonThe Looney 11 rule really makes shooting the moon easy and straightforward. For a newbie photographer, this is an absolute godsend. All you have to do is set the aperture as f/11 and then use the reciprocal of the same value you use for the ISO as the shutter speed.www.aperturebuzz.com
This is interesting ... why f11 .. seems that it's because the "sweet spot" of the lens (presumably f11) will bring the sharpest results .. other articles rather indicate to open wide, eg see here How to Photograph the Moon and the Supermoon - The Complete GuideHad a lot of practice shooting the moon, have you?

Thanks JeffNice shot! You have some very steady hands to do that at ISO 100, F/8, and 1/200.
Don't worry, it's mostly for beginners that need something to start with, you can always adjust to your liking later. If I recall, I shoot it at f/8 and 1/125 sec. and I've taken some good shots at f/11 as well with adjusted s.s.This is interesting ... why f11 .. seems that it's because the "sweet spot" of the lens (presumably f11) will bring the sharpest results .. other articles rather indicate to open wide, eg see here How to Photograph the Moon and the Supermoon - The Complete Guide
personally I open wide because my lens are supersharp even at f4 so basically I shoot at f5.6 .. f11 doesn't sound right to me .. can pls somebody explain why f11 when trying to have a detail like that ??? f11 makes no sense, it's less light and usual lens have a sweetspot f5.6-9, DoF is not problem here ...
article claiming that f11 is the only right aperture without elaborating further seems as crap to me ... there is IMO no usuable information .. I'd say instead know your gear and grab max open AP that gives sharp results, don't use AF, use two methodes outlined above, use tripod and you can eventually use some weak ND (ND8) to get nicely pronounced drawing
