I have not been able to get a decent photo of the moon. If yoiu have a moon pic could you please post both original and any PS you have done.

I would like to compare to the pics I have taken. I just don't seem to get enough detail whether I shoot RAW, JPEG, 9M Fine etc. I even played with sharpness, saturation setting on the camera.

Thanking you in advance.

Try this settings:

Optional Tripod Mount (Not Required but will be helpful)

Full Moon = ISO 80 f8 1/250 - 1/500 sec

Quarter Moon = ISO 80 f5.6 1/125 - 1/250 sec

I have nothave thetime to shoot the sky. Its always overcast here.

I have tried a full range of setting and bracketting using a tripod. The details are just not there. Whether this is just my camera is what I am interested to see, as I will be sending my camera back in the next couple of days to the repair centre.

BTW, if you have rain with overcast weather would you mind sending it my way? Plants need it for sustanance, I just want it to cool things down a bit.

Thanks for the tips.

Sky is overcast but tried a few shots just now. Manual focus, iso 80. Full zoom. Look at theboth shots. Tripod mount, shutter release cable.

Although notthat good (but remember I have a few minutes toget photoshots cause clouds are filling in the view). The Moon is about 80 degree above the horizon. Soyou could get a clear detailed image of lunar surface from this camera.

Regards

Here is one I took when I first got my S9000, its certainly not spectacular, but quite acceptable for a camera with such a multi-purpose lens:

Sorry Newdiamond, no offence intended, but in my opinion that is not acceptable - I've had far better results of the moon from my 5500

I must agree here. I have tried shots of the moon with all the correctly suggested settings. My 5500 however, takes really clear shots that are far superior.

I'll go back and find the shots I took with my S5000 and compare them...

Maybe its because the moon over North Carolina isn't as good for photography than in other states :G

Are you really in Cuba??? If that is the case you are actually a good bit closer to the moon than I am...
