Not real clear but the moon was almost straight overhead and my neck finally got sore.

Thanks Lisa. I used full manual controls and my TCON lens. I set the arpeture as low as it would go, 3.7 and set the shutter speed till the exposure meter was at 0.0 and set the self timer and it did the rest....and i took alot of pics, this is the only one that really turned out from about 30 pics. you have to use a tripod.

Great moonie Bob. When you try it with a full moon you may have to let the exposure go into the minus side to get a clean shot. It is a lot brighter than most folks think. A faster shutter speed and higher ISO can also help some. Play around and up and down the pasm. It is a lot of fun.


Great moon Dawg

Thanks for the comments, guys. I'm really trying with the PASM mode. Unfortunately not enough time to practice. I want to set down and really learn the manipulation software also. I think your right Dawg, that moon is brighter than you think.

Thanks for looking.

Bob
