I know, I know, but I can't help myself! I've been trying to match some of the moon shots I've see on here for years. Here I go again. I set everything on high and let'er rip. I've never been able to get the detail that others have and thought I'd just try it. What do you think? Cropped & resized,sharpened just a tad, then a littleof NR. If I sound a little crazy, it's 4:01am and I'm tired. Hope you enjoy.



Comments and MOON complaints welcome.

Very nice, Don. The moon was full last nite, but I was too tired to set up. Spent the whole day working on a portion of my barn and shop.

Looks like you have gotten there with this one.

Thanks bayourebel, Ladyhawk and Donna. I've had more trouble getting a really good shot of it. Now I just need to keep improving. This forum gives me goals to shoot for.

Hi d-sr. One of the best moon shotsI've seen in a while. Do you mind posting the camera settings? I have a miserable time getting a dissent moon shot.

Thanks Macnite. Like I said, Ive been fighting this since I got my FZ1 when they first came out. I've changed tripods, bought a new head, bought FZ20 so I could have the Remote, when I had a FZ15. I just did not realize how hard it is to get a good shot of the moon. Now I'll just keep experimenting and trying to get it better. I've seen some moon shotsthat I consider better,they are my goal. I gave the RSR X stuff in the post.

FZ20

Exposure 1/400

Fumber F5.6

Manual mode

Auto focus

ISO80

centerweight metering

Auto W/B

432mm + Tcon 17

Contrast Hard

Saturation High

Sharpness Hard

NR Low

Thanks a lot Fred. I've torn up a bunch of them in the past three or four years myself.
