Default New Moon

This is the result of my first attempt at a moon shot to see how the FZ-40 handles moonlight. Had a little trouble at first, but once I pushed it up around 1/250th - 1/300th the glare disappeared and this is what I ended up with. Considering this was using digital zoom on a monopod, I was pleasantly surprised. No editing except for cropping a bit of extra sky. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It's not really a new moon you know.

I think that's a great photo! Very well done; Gives me an incentive to try it also (if the clouds ever leave).

Thanks for all the comments, and I knew I would get called out on the title. It was a joke. This is a new camera and my first try at moon shots, plus it was a jab at the whole 'Twilight' thing. I'll try harder next time.
