  1. Well not quite but almost. Shot this tonight hand held with out a tripod. only thing I pp'd was to crop it the way you see it. Original moon was in the middle of the frame. I like this crop better.

    Nice moon! Much more detail in the second post, the first works too. I like the way you cropped it, fits with the phase of the moon perfect. Cheers, Bill
     
  4. I like the crop too, but it looks very soft.

    #2 looks better....I like the crop.
    You did good for handheld at night!
    I was out there tonight trying to get a clear shot, and finally managed a few between the gaps in the clouds.
