3rd day of trying to get a good shot of the moon. I think I did fine the 1st day and have gone down hill ever since, but at least I'm still trying and supposedly am learning at the same time.

Any way here it is, f8 0.7 and iso 80:

I know what you mean ..my first attempts were ok..but I had a hard time the nights after..I think it has alot to do with atmospheric conditions(need something to blame..lol)..as it was very humid here later on the week..I guess we just keep trying trying..lol.

it's still bright, the -2 is basicly a referance point
play with it till you get it, try lower -2.5 or even -3

You're on the right track with this one. Now shorten the exposure time; anywhere from 1/250 - ? should work. You'll be very pleased with the results when you get it right.

Thanks for all the comments and assurances. I've said this before, I've had my 6490 for close to 2 years and have taken more pictures since joining this forum. Everyone here has been very helpful. And as I've heard before - If you don't like it erase it and try again.

Steve, that's the beauty part of digital, instant gratification and being able to try again.

I really like this forum and the folks who gather here, you can post a pic and people don't rip it to shreds. It's nice to see other corners of the world too, I can't afford to travel everywhere I like but I'm gradually seeing the sights on here. Is this a great hobby or what?...ok, I'll quit rambling now, LOL. Anyway, don't give up.

Bob
