Great shot...talk about being in the right place at the right time!! One question though, I just got my FZ20 yesterday and tried this shot last night, I seem notice that it's fairly hard to get razor sharp focus at full zoom, did you use manual or auto-focus for your shot?

The one I have attached was manual zoom, F 4.0, 1/350 sec.
I did cheat a bit and used 2 X the 12X for 24X digital but...
seems to have worked fairly well.

Pretty happy with it since it was my first try but, would like to know if ther is a way to lock the focus at
infinity?

Thanks....

No need to use digital zoom. Tends to degrade the image as you can see.

Yes, you can get the same size and qualitywith software.

@static: You held the camera the wrong way round. The moon is upside down.:-)

I see what you mean about Tyco being in the wrong spot but...
wierd....I held it straight on?

Unless I was so drunk that I was standing on my head and didn't notice....(:

I know the digi zoom is not the geratest but...just wanted to compare against my little A303....the FZ20 is far better.

G'day one and all, seeing that we are in Moon-shots I took many advises and shot this one in B/W, we had a reasonable amount of cloud that night and it..tended to give an extra errie feeling to the photo.....bugger wrong photo just edited

Ok...I think I got it right now.....1/400 , ISO 200, F 4.0,
12X, handheld but I was braced against a wall. Very early in the AM .....pretty hard getting any background out here in the desert unless I catch it as soon as it rises.

Still very new to this, can anyone suggest a name of some software one could use to enlarge shots like this while maintinaing decent quality and, can you also suggest one good overall program for taking care of any imperfections in photos such as modifying overall effects in the photo like, noise, sharpness, contrast, color depth etc?

Thanks again.....

Just noticing that the moon appears to be in the wrong position again but...this is exactly how it appeared at
6:48 am from Phoenix. Not sure if anyone has noticed this before or not but, if you follow the moon through the night, it will seem to rotate quite a bit as it transverses the ecliptic on it's arc.
