Default Surface of the moon.

Took this picture yesterday for a remote place in Sharjah. I wanted to take the surface of the moon. Please comment and tell me how you find it so that I can improve upon it next time.

That's pretty good Only thing I'd suggest looking at the EXIF information is that you could reduce the ISO to 200 with a longer shutter speed for less noise (although it looks pretty clean anyway) and make sure it's exactly centred in the frame.

Hi- maybe just a touch too close to over exposure in a couple of areas- keep an eye on that histogram...!
Could be a touch sharper too...?

From a technical aspect I would say it is fine. From a artistic viewpoint, to hang on a wall, Moon shots usually look better with the terminator (shadow line) near vertical. In this picture it is horizontal. Rotate the image 90deg clockwise or counter, and see what you think of that.

A friend who's into photography (although weddings, not landscape or moonshots) advised me to try high ISOs on the moon. Maybe you got the same advice? In any case, I'd go with Martin. I never tried high ISOs on the moon. Still it's a very nice, clear shot of the moon with plenty of detail. Lots of potential if you want to go over-the-top processing (as in futuristic CGI landscapes).

Even though I can photograph the Moon at prime focus with my 1,000mm reflex lens, I seem to get better results using this lens as a telescope. I am able to couple a zoom eyepiece to it and digiscope using my Sony H70 P&S camera. Here is a moon photo made with the scope setup at 50X and the camera zoom at 41mm(35mm equiv.). The image is a crop of the original.
