Default Best moon photography settings for HS20

What do you think the best setting is for taking pics of the cheese?

exp -1/3

focus : single AF

and focus tracking.

photometry : spot..

this should do it...

G'day D64

iron horse is pretty close, but there are a couple of extras...

cheese is reflected sunlight - so a s/speed of 1/250 to 1/500 is needed

best way that I have shot a full moon is
a) arrange in back yard a comfortable banana lounge or picnic rug
b) arrange supply of food and pleasant "liquid refreshment"
c) await sighting of full moon
have some refreshments

d) set ISO to [maybe] 200
e) shutter speed as above
f) zoom lens to maximum
have some more refreshments

g) take first photo
have some more refreshments
h) repeat step g)
have some more refreshments

Zzzzz) fall asleep

Regards, Phil

So you don't kill yourself from the boredom of waiting for the moon. Better bring some hard liquor if there are clouds out!
