Launch pad??? Booster rocket???/ UH...Oh yeah the wife just explained it to me! LOL Tripod is a must. Longer lens can't hurt! When you get one that is a shade too dark go for one stop slower on the shutter speed till it lights up but retains the detail!

I was actually thinking of making my last mission to the moon without a booster rocket tonight, but the cloud cover was awful. Maybe I will try tomorrow night, then before long, my booster rocket will be here!

Super, I am getting so much good info on this site.

My attempts at the moon were hand held with the P712 and a slow shutter speed.

Tonight may be a good one for some more shots using the tripod and a little longer lens.

My camera is 12x optical + 5x digital which would theoretically be 60x.

Should I attempt the max on the tripod or just stick with the 12x ??

NASA always uses a gantry to launch so you should be using a tripod for the moon too !
