Some time ago there was this thread about a setup for taking moonshots.
Do any of you remember this thread??

If not, can any of you guys post pics/links of the setups you use to take moonshots??
I have a DX6490 and was wondering what setup I would need to make moonshots.

-------------------------

Also, if it aint to much trouble, can some of you guys who do birdscoping also post pics/links of your setup??


Thanks in advance,

Bedde when I get home I'll post some of the URL's so you can see what I use! I also have the DX6490 and have used the TCON-17 to take some and no TCON for others! The main thing is you need to shoot the Moon when Zoomed in as if you were shooting a daytime shot! The moon has so much light that using nigt time settings will wash out any high-lights! A tripod is a must and if you are zoomed way out there you need to set the timer and let it trigger the shutter to eleminate any shakes! Like I said I'll post some URL's linking to the posts of mine where I shot the moon and posted the settings used! See ya' later!!

I read somewhere that shooting the moon is the same as shooting anything that is lighted byfull sunlight. True??

Its a little bit true because you have to use fast shutter speeds to capture the moon, but not as fast as if you are shooting the sun..

Ken check the posts i put up just above you! I posted moon shots in almost all those and also posted the EXIF or exposure information data with them! You will be able to see the exposure values I used and they will give you a starting point!
