Hi all, I'm getting really interested in taking moonshots with my canon a630. But as it only has 4x optical zoom, I can't get the moon close enough :sad:

Any suggestions how to?

Btw, Are these settings ok?

iso: 80 // shutter: 0.5" to 2"

2 second shutter ?

Seems way too long.

For my last moon shoots (near full) I used ISO64, F5.6 and 1/160s

ThoughI was using a x12 H1 +x1.7 tcon and metering directly off the moon.

Here's mine.
Haven't got a BIG zoom, so not as much detail as some of the excellent shots here.

200mm (320mm @35mm equiv)
F/11
1/200 sec
ISO 200

This shot really surprised me. Taken with the Nikon S10 last weekend at 4:16PM before dark. 40x zoom. Full Auto mode. No tripod. Focal Length: 253.2ISO 50.

Considering this is small point-and-shoot camera I never thought I'd see more than the ball of white light in the sky!

no suggestions on shooting the moon with a lousy 4x zoom?

I tried holding a binocular in front, but couldn't find the moon anymore then or the binocular lans was to small to fit my camera's.

Plz help
