Default Full Moon w/ FZ40

I took my FZ40 out tonight to shoot the full moon and managed to take two shots before the clouds swallowed it.

Cropped in CS5, sharpened at 30% in smart sharpen filter at 0.5 radius and I adjusted the image using the levels dialog to bump up the contrast a little. I am positive with my tripod I could have done better.

ISO 80, 1/250, IS Mode 2, f5.2, full zoom, handheld, and center spot metering.

Justin I have found that the EZ Zoom at 10Mp is very good and will give you much more details of course handheld is always hard, but brace the camera on something and the FZ40 is a SUPER great moon shot camera!

Very nicely done...thanks for sharing...

Thanks!

I will try EZ next time. The weather here in NY is frigid so it might be a while
