Trying out some moon shots at various settings. Thought this one turned out quite nice. I found that using the tiff version of this photocropped down to 1024x768 gave me a pretty sharp4R size print without the moon being too small.

Replaced photo. This time white balance adjusted using PhotoBase, which came with CD

...but also it's fun and it's good to know you can get a good crop afterwards. What settings did you use?

Try at long exposures and vary between F5.6 and F8.0 tocompare brightness and detail. I found that under-exposing and auto bracketing seems to also give you varying degrees of sharpness. I kept the ISO at 80. IfoundNR set at high softened the photo too much when cropped and artifacts seemed to creep in. Use Tripod, turn off OIS.I wasshooting Tiff files most of the time.

I bought a 1gig 66x SD card by Ridata the other day. Uploading a 14mb file took only a few seconds. I remember my old Nikon took over 10seconds to upload a tiff file to 40x CF card sonot too annoyed with upload time with the Fluzi.

Any other tips on moon shots?
