There is supposed to be a full moon and a very clear night here is Florida. I just got a digital rebel with the kit lens and would like to snap a few shots of the moon tonight.

I am a complete newb but have been experimenting with the camera for about a week. I understand ISO...learning about aperture as I go.....

Does anyone have any suggestions for camera setting tonight?
I will be at work and won't be able to take a bunch of time to experiment.

Tks in advance.

The full moon is in full sunlight so the sunny f/16 rule applies: shoot at f/16 with a shutter speed of 1/ISO. With an ISO of 100, shoot at 1/100th sec at f/16, or 1/200th at f/11, or 1/400th at f8, or ... Bracket a bit from there.
