Here is a shot of the full moon I did tonight. This was taken with my Pentax K10D and Pentax 50-200 lens. I did this in full auto with the exposure compensation set to -2 stops. It was shot raw and processed in Adobe Lightroom. It was cropped. It is this kind of cropping that is the reason higher resolution is important. Not for more detail but for extreme cropping with having enough left of the image to do something with.

Oh, the camera was tripod mounted.
