Shutter speed is a bit too slow, the moon is moving, move the shutter speed to 1/750th or a bit fast. Aperture to around f/8. Adjust from there.

Thanks Frank, I'll try that next time we see the full moon. We've got clouds now and dunno if the moon will be visable tonight or not.

You got a nice reflection on the left side of the moon; which really brings out the roundness. (mine looks flat!)
You might bump up the contrast just a tad but otherwise you did good.

You did well Dianne, but I noticed looking at your shot that the angle of the moon is very different from the Northern Hemisphere compared to the Southern Hemisphere...

Your Shot Dianne (#1) from the Northern Hemisphere shows that crater at the 4 O'Clock position and the shot I took (#2) it's at the 2 O'Clock position...
Never thought about the different angle and I didn't think that there would have been so much difference between the hemisphere's... Go figure...

#1... Northern Hemisphere

That is interesting! Didn't know the difference in where we live would make that much of a difference. Like your shot, too BTW:biggrin:

1/250th is more than fast enough.... Use mirror lockup if you have it and always use a tripod and remote shutter release if poss.

Not a bad start at all :)

Here's my best full-ish moon - taken with D70 plus a 500mm scope at f5, with a couple of Barlows for good measure, about 2000mm total FL. Mosaic of about 20 frames IIRC.
