I think they look very nice. Don't take many moon shots so can't help with advice but I know we have some members that are good at it.
Hopefully they can offer some advice.

G'day mate

Well done - these images are very good compared to some of mine !!
I agree with your spot metering in this case, exposure & focus is accurate too

Regards, Phil

Wow! Those were taken without a close-up lens?

Excellent! I'll have to give it a try also.

Very good images without Telecon.

If you haven't already, use tripod and camera timer.
I think using the timer will result in a sharper image.

A good telecon makes images of moon much easier..

hi all thanks for comments I did use a tripod and camera timer, going on a cruise around the carribbean at the end of Nov so am hoping I can take some good photo's bit worried abount my handheld focusing skills though as some pix i take do not seem to be as sharp as I expected, will just have to take more photos and get more experienced, have only used point and shoot cameras previously so all the settings are a bit scary..
