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!

Where is the moon?
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 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
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
canon 7D. Sigma 800mm
Nicely captured, Rhona.
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.
Thanks CB & Alexandra
Did anyone else get images ?
I did! Not as good as I hoped but will be uploading shortly! Thanks for anyone who joined in/helped out and took part hope u all had fun
no where near as impressive as the one above, but not bad for my first attempt
Taken with canon 550d and tamron 200mm lens
Good oh you got it it's great to be able to see the craters isn't it.
Yeah its amazing what you can see, just a shame i didnt have a super telephoto lens! that will have to be on my xmas list ha ha
It was a bit hazy tonight (well that's my excuse anyway! ). 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!
as always as with any other type of celestial event... guess what? it was cloudy!
