At 300 mmthe moon is larger but not well focused (soft). The under exposure is need to get the detail of the moon's surface.

Thanks Steve ... I didn't think to underexpose. I took a couple of shots last full moon that I wasn't impressed with. I'll have to try again!

Thanks!

Ron

Hey Steve, gotta a question for ya ... my nephew is getting married next June around Banner Elk, NC ( outside of Asheville) ... could you recommend some nice shots to go shoot? I think there' s a waterfall in the area .. if I've been told correctly?

Thanks,

Ron

Ron: Though I live in Raleigh further east, I can make a couple of recommendations.

(1) Google this: "waterfalls North Carolina". Western NC is waterfall heaven...because of the extensive mountain terrain and the water-carrying weather patterns (from Ohio) that *collide* with our western mountains.

Linville Falls and Upper Creeek Falls may be those you had in mind: http://www.cs.unca.edu/nfsnc/recreat...s/linville.htm

Look for links to them on this page: http://www.ncwaterfalls.com/index2.htmif you would like to see what they look like.

(2) Any part of the Blue Ridge Parkway between Asheville and the northern state border is worth taking a camera. In some places you will be looking across to a panorama of a peak rising a full 3,000 feet from an elevation of 3,000 feet. Between Asheville and Banner Elk is Mount Mitchell in the Black Mountain Range which is the *highest* peak east of the Mississippi River. I have stood at the "gap" at the entrance gate and watched the clouds crawl UP one side, pass over the gap and fall down the other side. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_M...North_Carolina)

(3) Always plan ahead in that part of the country: (1) point-to-point distances are way shorter than road distances and (2) rock slides, seasonal weather (winter) and storm washouts bring on road closings.

(4) Definitely bring your camerra and lenses!

My brother took this one, but not with a Pentax :sad:, He is a mad keen Astronomer and has a huge telepscope, borrowed a mates camera mount to shoot this one a couple of days ago.

I've been trying to resist buying a dedicated macro lense ... but the force is strong. Perhaps it'sa good idea to give in to the dark side of macro, because reaching to the heavens must be way more expensive !!!

Cheers, Mike
