Nice. I love moon shots. I was just thinking of going out in the yard and trying to take a few myself. Of course, I'm not working with the same kind of equiment you are, and my photo would turn out more like a sea of black with one undentifiable white glob :D

actually, you don't need alot of special equipment. the moon is alot brighter than most people realize. i shot this at 250/th f7.o with an iso of 100. my cam was tripod mounted, but you could hand hold at that speed and get a decent shot. it was shot with a 300mm zoom, but it wasn't even a good one, cheap job selling used for 70-100 bucks...

I have a 35mm-70mm lens and that's probably the only lens I'm going to have for a while. I'm starting college in September (better late than never) and money is tight. Plus I've told myself I have to get better with the equipment I have before I start buying new stuff... of course this hasn't stopped me from stalking eBay like a madman.

It's good to know that a 300mm zoom is capable of taking such a detailed shot of the moon though. I always assumed it would take something bigger.
