Took these with a Fuji s5600 with a 2x tele-converter on a tripod Settings were F8 @ 1/80 Seconds ISO speed of 64 to keep the noise down

Took these with a Fuji s5600 with a 2x tele-converter on a tripod Settings were F8 @ 1/250 Seconds ISO speed of 64 to keep the noise down. Also use the digital zoom on the camera which is [email protected]?#E.

nice shot. I just tried my new Canon S3 on the moon. All I got was bright white spot, no detail. Also the moon seemed to increase and decrease in diameter on the viewing screen.

Thanks Neil - Never having shot a picture like this, I was flummoxed on how to expose it properly. It came out waaaay overexposed at first.

I ended up googling "photographing the moon" for a starting point and then adjusting a bit from there.

40 shots later, I got it about as good as it would get.

The first time I tried it took a few shots to get the feel I was looking for. You did an excellent job mate. Keep them coming.
