  • Full Moon Picture

    Well, I've been waiting for a full moon for a couple of months to try my luck at capturing the beauty of the moon at night. Here's one of my shots. I think I did ok considering it was my first time. If anyone else has any full moon pictures, please share

        It's a nice shot, but I agree with clovis..what settings did you use? That shot looks way over processed.

          ISO 800
          Shutter I think was 4000 because the moon turned out too bright when I had a slow shutter speed like 10 seconds. It looks grainy because I over sharpened it since it came out extremely soft un-processed.

            That explains it. Here is a tip you can try.

            Expose for the moon only, and it will be o.k., the sky will be dark as it should be. Do not try and use any type exposure that averages the frame.

            Use a tripod, you should not need iso800 to "shoot the moon"... :P

                Jon,
                You inspired me to give it a shot. I've always wanted to shoot the moon digitally...
                this is with a 1.4x sigma ex teleconverter.



                It actually looked o.k. until I compressed it.

                Fun stuff

                      right click the open image,
                      then select properties,
                      advanced (i think)

                      Then took a screen shot of it.

                          I tried one with the D30, but at only 300mm, with this soft lens, and 3MP...it wasn't that good at all. But shooting the moon around 1/250th f/6.7 worked ok for me. ISO 100

                              great photo, I think i see that American flag :P and everyone said it was a hoax, that reminds me, the US IS going back to the moon and the newest destination announced by NASA is Mars, service starts sometime in about 20 years
