Here is the pertinent camera data for this shot. BTW Full Moon shots are over rated as such. There is not much surface detail or depth to a full moon. You get much better shadows on the mountains and crators along the terminator during the early or late phases. Just FYI.

Thansk for looking,
Steve

Here's a shot at the other end of the phases. This 3/4 waxing moon was taken at 1/250th, f/13, ISO 800.
You can see how much detail is lost on the upper right from the first picture. Everything is flat and less interesting, IMO.

Great shots, Steve. The first is definitely more dramatic.

Another nice set of moon shots. I agree the first one has a very dramatic feel to it

Nice ones, Steve. I see about the partial shot being more detailed with the shadows. I'll try to remember that if I can ever see the moon here.
