NIGHT MOON, another success.

Ta-da! I did it... sort of.  This is my best shot of the moon at night by far.  I used the zoom lens and my tripod.  At first I made all of the same old mistakes, relying on the automatic night-shot settings which produced the same old glowing ball.  Just as frustration was setting in... AGAIN.. I remembered some advice I received from Tc01hm, and hey, presto!  A semi-decent shot of the moon!  A few more practices and I might be able to tackle a full moon!  Thanks again Tess, I have a lot to learn but I am having so much fun along the way.

That is awesome, Dorn.  I don't have the right kind of camera for Moon shots. :(  I will just have to enjoy yours.

Blessings!

so what was the magical advice that yielded such a perfect moon?  you have a 300mm lens right?  you use a manual setting or something?
