Great image... I'm going to try tonight. It's been super clear here in Missouri as of late, and a super bright moon. I've reread this thread a number of times and I still forgot about the infinitry force focus trick that someone mentioned up top.

I've got a Fuji s602z, 3.1 mp 6X zoom. I wish the zoom was longer, but its not... telephoto here I come! hehe... j/k.

I'll post anything if they come out, it's all freehand here, no tripod yet.

Sorry to revive this old thread (again) a month later

(moon's funny that way) but I have been able

toconfirm a suspicion which relates directly to the

original question, "how to photo the moon".

I feel that Tom LaPrise gave us the general

photographic nub of the situation - it's a sunny landscape

(in a sea of black). Unless you've got a long zoom

and good spot metering, it maynot be a job that

your automatic exposure system will handle.

There is, however, another automatic system

(and this one applies specifically to digital cameras)

which will not handle the situation well, and that is

White Balance. Notice how some of our December moons

(including mine) are essentially b/w. There's not enough

information in the scene for automatic white balance,

the best it can do is to grey-center the colour distribution.

With a largely monochromatic subject, we end up with

a grey-scale image. All of which is to say, do not shoot

the moon with your white balance set to Auto.

Use Neutral (aka Sunny).

Here's what I got the evening of January 24th

(I'ld have posted sooner but there seemed to be

a problem with the forum regarding attachments).

Of course, only the colour improvement is the result

of using neutral white balance. Therest is the result

of my having purchased a Tcon-17 teleconverter

and having begun to play with postprocessing

(sharpness and contrast).

regards,

---Swampy.

Very nice. Which camera do you have, and what did you use for a tele adapter?
