I see the other posts have the image as part of the message and not as an attachment. Can somebody tell me how to do that?Thanks

i think if you reduce the size of the image so the long edge is 800 pixels (for example)

Thanks for the suggestion. I've cropped the image to 800 pixels. Let me see if this works out.[img]file://localhost/Users/sajith/Desktop/Moon/moon1_cropped.jpg[/img]

It's too dark - underexposed.

Yeah, I guess it is underexposed. I wanted to get the rim of the moon clearly, so I had the shutter speed at 4000. Previously, I was trying to shoot the moon in th Av mode and I used to get a bright glow with no clearly defined edges. Next time, I should try to get the right exposure. Thanks.

I didn't mean to be so short with my answer, I kicked my dog and feel much better now so I suggest you google "photographing the moon."

This was one of my favorites.

The moon shots on that site are amazing.* When I get a better photo, will post it. Thanks!
