Nice picture Frank!

I don't know what im doing wrong, but whenever I have tried to take a picture of the moon it never seems to turn out right and is always way over expossed and the colouring is way off....hmmm Maybe I should try playing with the white balance setting for my camera and see if that changes anything given that I still use the auto mode.

Either way, I love the picture!

Fantastic picture! My shot of the moon never turn out half that good. Maybe it's because my zoom is only half as long...

Default Great Shot!

Looks better than some I've seen that were made with telescopes!

When I take pictures of the moon. Im usually always shooting with a shutter of about 1/500th or 1/350th even though the camera wants 1/8th or whatever. With my Sigma it was at 400mm at f5.6 1/500th I believe? or 1/350th and came out just right with ISO 200/400

I cant remember the exact settings, but I remember it being a crazy shutter speed at night...
