One more....

Same settings as the first one but why does the color look different? I didn't edit either of these and they were taken one right after the other...

Could be that the auto white balance was arriving at different conclusions, so to speak, as to what the color should be.
That moon sure was nice and bright early this morning!

Mooning could become one of your specialties. Good shots.

Nice pictures. I don't know for sure but have hear that rhe best way to shoot moon shots is to set your white bal on daylight and the will give you a better photo. maybe you will get a chance to try this.

Very..Very nice Nik! I've tried it both ways with the white balance and am lazy enough to just let the camera pick one. Can give a different photo with each shot and therefore more shots to choose from! I really like to get it (the moon ) at a low rise from the horizon! that way the atmosphere gives it an orangish glow!

Much better this time round nik! And good to see you're diving into the manual modes.

Does the P850 have a click WB option? I know the 880 does and I'm pretty sure the 850 does too, it's worth exploring sometimes if you can't get the right settings that you want!
