I have modified this slightly to make it bright. However, I am not fully satisfied because the image is not as clearly focused as you see in binoculars. Any advice on settings?
I shot this with F8, 1/125, on tripod with 10 sec timer to avoid shutter shake. Still I got only this. On FZ3.

last sunday I shoot this. My thinking is the same. Probably it is because I used digital zoom, and binoculars are totally optical.

I modified it to make it darker!!! :blah: what do you think?? they are almost the same!!

Digital zoom is useless. You can't get more details with it. Blowing up the picture with software has the same effect.

You are rigth, however I read that digital zoom could be helpful when focusing, but it does not work for me. I think so.

Dear MSantos

this DIgital zoom question has been widely debated.

Obviously full size digital zoom images are to be stayed away from.

But when resized they can look good (but still I have not made experiments to check if it's better a resized pic taken with some digital zoom or instead -as most of you would say- a 12 optical zoom pic with some Photoshop size improvement/enlarg.)

For those of you with an Exif reader (like the Freeware Exif viewer 2) which also displys Digital zoom used, you can check that the following image was taken with 12x optical + 3,10 DFigital zoom, thus about 37x total, then resized.

Some artifacts of diggoital zoome have emerged for I also sofrly sharpened the pic.

This half moon is really nice. Let me try with the same settings in a few days, when the moon will again be exactly half like this.
