Wow!!!! Did you take that shot with the *ist? If so, what ISO, shutter, etc did you use??? That is one of the most clear shots of the moon that I've ever seen!!!! I'd love some information! I am looking for shots like that from my next digicam! Thanks in advance.

actually this was taken with my fuji s7000. it's a composite of 3 images. the moon was full for the main shot and the moon was actually there but i liked this moon better so i added it over the original. the sleigh came from a google search. i'll look for the original.

i haven't shot the moon with the ist yet but it should give as good an image..

O.k. Does anyone know how to get a picture of the moon and still get the detail like that though??? I've tried with mulitple cameras and can't figure it out.. . If anyone has some hints or tricks, I would greatly appreciate them!

ok boog,

this is really easy.. that moon you are talking about was shot with my fuji at an equivelent of 205mm, 35mm camera.

setup on a tripod, put the cam in manual, set your first exposure for, oh, f8 at 1/500sec, iso200. from there go to f8 at 1/250sec iso 200. from there go to f8 at 1/125sec--etc. 1/60, 1/30sec.
use auto or daylight white balance. i always shoot in raw so i decide.

it'll be , different strokes for different folks. the moon is a lot brighter than most realize. you can do this hand holding but.........
these settings WILL WORK ON A FULL MOON.. you've got to experiment with shots like these,, hey,,, FILM's CHEAP!!!!!

This was a 1st attempt with my DS2 attached by T-ring to my 600mm telescope.

Manual focus was the bigger issue.
