Default ISO80 Loss of Quality?

I was wanting to ask yall if I use iso80 now this will keep a bright moon from washing out my image, (ie not captureing the details)?

And do I loose detail with the lower iso? Being the ccd is less sensitive?

Seems I'm getting a lot of Noise at iso80.

Don't know? Depends on cloudiness, haze, clear & bright...Need a Filter for a bright moon...if you can catch the moon with the right light ISO80-100 will work great without a filter...

LTZ-

Also using spot metering will help nail the exposure. Due to the light output of the moon spot metering works best.

I keep my FZ35 set on AF Mode (the center dot) Thing, and Metering Mode on (the center dot)

Thanks for the info.

Last Nights images came out looking like crap.
