Moon shots are dime a dozen. Even good ones who have been done with a tripod. Handheld is not recommended. This isnt too bad for handheldl but you do know it would be a lot better if you used a tripod. At small size its ok. But make any kind of blowup and you will see nothing but fuzzies.

It's a nice shot but probably would have been sharper if a tripod was used.

As the others have pointed out tripod is key for a good shot.

There is one person who has hot moon shooting pretty well sorted so always looking at his work when thinking about how to improve.

Check out http://www.pbase.com/liquidstone/moon_shots

Hope that helps, as you can see, long glass and good tripod help these shots to be nailed.

That is quite a site Mark left you. A good one for reference to see how you are coming along.

Thank you very much for the comments, that site is wonderful. I just wanted to show the pic, because this is my first reflex. And I guess this is not a bad start.

Isn't his work just stunning, and also where he lives, certainly a lucky man.

I'm glad you are happy with your venture into the dSLR world, I'm sure you are going to love the creativeness that you have with a dSLR over P&S.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Mark

The shot came out pretty good for handheld. Maybe next time try pushing the ISO to 800, that way you can use a faster shutter speed. Though that shot does prove the the in camera Image Stabilization works very well.

Even at the reduced resolution, the lens' characteristic chromatic aberration is apparent. I think any softness people are seeing is more a result of that than not using a tripod.
