Thanks for kind words. I'm not really interested in astronomy - I just thought about Moon as about another object I could take a picture of at the time given, that's all.

Gorgeous shots bioware. Your daughter is delightful and I am soooo jealous of your moon captures. I would love to know your moon settings as I have been trying in vain. The clouds have been giving off too much reflective glare so the moon isn't clear "down under". Cheers

Banksy,
I'm happy you like them.
The settings for moon shots were:
#3 S-mode, 86.4 mm, ISO 80, 1/320 sec, f4.4, +0.33 EV, digital zoom x2.9 - I had the opportunity to put the camera on a tree branch to stabilise it.
#4 A-mode, 86.4 mm, ISO 80, 1/50 sec, f4.4, -2 EV, digital zoom: none
To stabilise the camera I leaned myself against the wall of my house.

Best regards

Thanks, I will try those settings. This is the best I could do last night before it got too dark and hazy again. Cheers Lyn

bioware, they're all cool photos - thanks for posting!

Banksy, try a much faster exposure. I took this one the other afternoon in Brisbane when the sky was still very blue:

Still I'm jealous.....!
My moon is more egg shaped than yours - still we are on opposite sides of Australia aren't we.
Thanks BP, I will try that tonight.

Thanks aayushjoshi.

Lyn, I was just getting home from work and noticed the moon:
- Propped camera against deck post, P mode, 80 ISO, 5 megapixel, max tele.
- Tried EV at a few setting, ended up somewhere near -3 EV.
- A bit of GIMP processing to increase shadows (basically make background totally black), desaturate and remove haze from around the edge of the moon.

Hope this helps

Cheers for that Mick, I will have a go with the FZ35 and also the D90 and see what happens. If I post tomorrow, it worked. If I don't then clearly I need to practice, practice...

All great shots, I love the toothless smile, gorgeous.

#2 in second series is a great fun shot

You inspired me to try my hand at a moon shot last night. No luck though, it was too windy. The sea breeze in summer is a beautiful thing -unless your trying to take a photo of the moon!

Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing more.
