Yea me to

My moon shots are just not coming out perfect and crisp

Here is what I have been trying

(1) Use a tripod
(2) Shoot in RAW
(3) Use the Manual Mode
(4) Set for Lowest ISO
(5) Set Aperture to f/8
(6) Center the Moon in the View Finder
(7) Use Manual Focus
(8) Adjust the shutter speed until the "Manual Exposure Assistance" shows "0"
(9) Use the timer
(10) Take the picture

Yes...it is quite comparable to the camera EZ-Zoom alone and the IQ is basically the same as far as I can tell...

Top Half Moon Shot:
f/5
1/125
Exp +0.66
Spot Metering and Focusing

Take the same shot over & over and adjust exposure by 1 step each time...this will give you an idea of what is required...thats what I do...digital cameras are great to that end...

The settings are all on my flickr page...

1/160 second
F4.4
ISO 100
Full zoom and EZ zoom (image size set to 3meg)
Used Auto focus
Saturation and sharpness set to +1
Noise reduction high (+1)
Handheld shot, but braced against the side of my house
Took a lot of shots, and cropped the best to get rid of excess sky.

Good luck...
