I took this last night in my back garden.

Eos 20D 75-300mm F/20 1/6sec

Pity it wasn't a full moon. This is a 100% crop so you can see how small it was in the frame.

Did I get the exposure about right? I know it's not pin sharp, but it was quite windy at the time and the tripod was all over the shop.

hi Paul, well in my opinion this is a very good result for a picture taken with a camera (i suppose with the 300 mm).

It is probably just a bit unterexposed but not too much as we can see very well the details around the terminator (the light-shadow boundary).

As far as full moon shots keep in mind that they sometimes are poor rgespect to other phases. This is due to the fact that when the moon is full, it is lacking of shadows on the surface so the overall result is flat (i have seen really spectacular full moon shots obtained by merging two opposite quarter moon photos)

I have to aggree. It wouldn't look half as good if it were a full moon. You'd have different shades but no texture from the lack of shadows.

You are both right.

I took this photo in the last hour and it's nothing like the first.

yes..but this one is great anyway because exposure is just right. i think this is an exellent result. you probably could try to sharpen a bit with unsharp mask
