Nice shot Mark, I have been toying with the idea of either using a scope (tele or spotter) to try and increase the clarity and resolution of moon shots on the pany, overall they are not bad, but noise seems to always be a problem, here is one I took some time ago, but despite trying at various settings this is still my best shot thus far of the moon:

Pretty good especially for hand held Mark. Hand holding a shot using a TCON-17 at night is not very easy, with the subject 286,000 miles away the slightest wiggle is magnified.

Could not agree more about the handheld. You only got 1/80s on this. The rule of thumb used to be that you needed 1/focal length for a steady shot. With the Tcon that should be around 1/600. Assume the pany OIS gives you 2 stops, that is 1/150. You have a full stop less and I think the softness we see in this shot is ause by that. I reckon if you try a tripod or at least get some form of rest or support you will find a decided improvement.

Thanks for the comments fellas.I forgot to mention that the shot was cropped a bit (was a long day yesterday).If tonight`s clear I might try for better shots with the tripod.....this one was very much an opportunist shot, grabbing the camera and shooting a few shots, and this one turned out ok(ish).

Seedubs, thats a nice shot you posted, loads of detail

Sharp picture, considering you hand held. You must have a very steady hand, all I would get is a blurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Thanks Annie and Hiroshi for commenting.

Hiroshi, I used burst mode and ran off a series of shots, all but this one were blurred.
