Can anyone recommend what settings to use with only moon light for shots of the moon and the moon over a lake? I would appreciate any suggestions.:?

Is the lens your using the 70-300 4/5.6 G ? If it is I've tried this with that lens and like the linkjtgraphics posted suggests 300mm isn't really long enough, even with cropping...

the other thing I found with that lens (assuming your using the G version that I was) is that the high contrast between the light moon and dark sky gave quite bad purple fringing down the side of the moon... I'll try and dig the photo out when I get home from work

If youre using using one of the other 70-300's (d type or sigma apo) you might do a bit better although Ive never used them so don't know.

It's a 4/5.6G. Itcame out fine except for another image of the moon, only the and image was green. It was just right of the real moon. Who said the moon isn't made of green cheese.:?
