The Moon

By AdamCan  
Hi,

Saw this while out yesterday 23/11/07 and thought would try to get a shot. Tried several speeds but this seemed the right for the job. Amazing just how much shake you get from the shutter on shot like this, even with a remote!!

thanks for looking

Nice shot but you were saying about shake from the shutter but have you tried to do mirror lock up as well as a cable release, when you take the photo press the shutter button once to lock the mirror up then a second time to take the image, it's a bit funny to so at first because you have to press the shutter twice but may be worth a go

PS to set mirror lock go to menu then custom settings not sure what number it is on your 350D sorry

Hi Adam
I know when you use mirror lock up there is a bit of a clunk as the mirror locks up, but that must be normal because my camera does the same

Have you thought about exposure bracketing, a slightly under exposed moon can be moodier

Thanks for the settings.
Have you tried a 2 or 12 second delay when shooting.
That's what I do and keep well away so as not to knock the tripod etc.
cheers,

tried that and managed to get no real detail and a shadow strange (must be me)

will try harder next time there is a full moon!!
do you getting a set of extension tubes or a 2x converter is useful for this application?
