Excellent shot. Love the detail.

I tried one myself last night. First time ever, not as good as yours though as I used (shock horror!) Digital zoom to boost my 12x optical zoom on my Canon S2is up to 48x. I know its naughty but without a telescopic attachment its the only way I could do it.

Result attached anyway.

Yes its been suggested to me that I should stick to optical zoom (my Canon S2is has 12x optical zoom). I did, however, find it difficult to focus on the moon at 12x zoom, even with a tripod, as it was still tiny in the viewfinder. I'll try a few more when conditions allow though (no chance tonight as its raining here today).

Isnt it funny, looking at the two photos, how the moon is at the same angle and has the same shadow cover, in the UK and Utah. Makes the world seem very small!
