This shot was taken with fz20 at 12 zoom, with the raynox telephoto 2020pro (phayee adapter).
F8
1/100 iso 80.
What the heck is that green fringe around the moon? How to get better shots with the green aura around the moon?

That green fringe is the fault of the Raynoxlens. It is known as chromatic abberation. It can also be of purplish color as well. The lens made for the Pana FZ10/20 DMW-LTZ10 does not have such problems. Of course, it costs two and a half times the Raynox 2020.

This is a problem that occurs quite often when taking large zoom telephoto shots.

When shooting the moon go into black & white mode. That will eliminate the fringing problems being visible for the most part. Essentialy the moon has nocolor;its green cheese surfacenot-withstanding.

I got a nice shot just using the x12 on my FZ20

set the camera to f8 and 1/125

use munal focus

my results were fairly sharp first time out.

(I used to have a Fuji 7000 and could never get it to focus on the moon)
