Some tips I've kept:


(1) Put camera on tripod. Use cable release if possible.

(2) Camera to Manual.

(3) ISO to 100 if possible or to 200 if that is the minimum. Make sure auto-ISO is turned off.

(4) Aperture to f/11.

(5) Shutter speed to 1/125 for ISO 100, and 1/250 for ISO 200. But bracket either side of these speeds.

(6) Lens to manual focus and set focus to infinity. Lens should be minimum 200mm (on FF) or equivalent on smaller sensors. But longer is better!

Good luck to you too RW, will be heading out shortly the moons bright, but not looking that big here in the Scottish Borders at the moment.

The moon finally came out, yey Grin its like a really long twilight now, barely any visible stars, can plainly see the horizon against the sky, very light night. Have not been out yet but i am tempted, been admiring the view all night long Smile

Managed only a few shots of the moon before some dirty great clouds drifted in, nearly garrotted myself on the washing line trying to find the best position Grin

Agrees, lovely image, the moon always looks the same but i never tire of seeing it, like everything else in the night sky, i find it fascinating.

It was a bit hazy tonight (well that's my excuse anyway! Wink). Here is my effort, handheld at 300mm (FF equiv) - because I couldn't be bothered setting up the tripod in the dark. Last time I tried that I tripped over one the legs and almost fell! Grin
