I noticed that the moon was very bright early this evening (8 pm) so

I managed a few quick shots before the clouds covered it.

H2 1/60th sec F5 Full digital zoom ............. Jim

I caught my moon with a full belly. There really is a man ( or woman ) in the moon. ( I just dated myself, didn't I? ):

H9, Tele-Converter.

And that bright white light on the lower left side, is on the moon, not my lens. My neighbor walking by saw me shooting, looked in my EVF and asked 'Whar is that light?'. I don't know but I believe it is on the moon, not my camera/lens.

Great photos of the moon, guys. All were better thwn mine but mine was the first try for me so have much to learn. It was handheld and just a quick photo or two.

Tripod is really needed, I know and will try it next time. Also, mine was greyscale and will try a color one soon. Tks for the pics...... Jim

Nick, I notice that my moonpic also has the bright spot near lower

left side. It isn't on your lens, I think. Tks, Jim

I love moon shots, or other planet shots.

I have yet to get a moon shot that I am thrilled with.
What I have learned thus far is that you need 500+mm to get any degree of detail and definately a tripod.
Very interesting but difficult subject.
