Default Cloudy Moon Shots, FZ40

The moon was appearing/disappearing; very cloudy tonight. I went with ISO 80 on the tripod, which was likely a mistake. Used 5 MPixels, EZ. These are SOOC:

Thanks for the comments. EXIF data: f/5.2, ISO 80, focal length 108mm (equiv. 1013), AWB. The clouds were moving quickly so I didn't have much time to think about the settings.

scoobydude, that looks amazing - TCON17 definitely brings it closer!

Thanks Backyard, yours look good for a cloudy night. EXIF on yours looks good, I also used spot metering, image stabalisation off, if using tripod and 14MP no EZ zoom, just cropped it in Photoshop. I also converted mine to B&W as the FZ100 gives a blue tinge to the very top edge of the moon. Possibly due to the CMOS sensor . Had to shoot mine quite early on in the evening as atmospheric stuff caused poor focus.

Thanks Scoobydude.

Completely forgot to turn off image stabilisation, although now I think about it, it's been on for my still-life tripod shots and they've all been pretty clear.

I might try again in a couple of days when we should have a full moon, if the clouds clear up.

Tried my image stabil' on and off the other night but seemed to be ok on either aswell. Strange. Good luck for some clear nights down under

Okay, I'm jealous. I have no idea how to set up a shot of a full moon at night.

What ISO?

What fstop?

What lens?

What shutter speed?

Manual Focus? Auto?

Mine just look like a white blob. I am very, very jealous.

Any other advice would really be appreciated!

Faithfully yours,
FP
