    So I guess that is only half the story.

    What other equipment were used with your Coolpix 4500 to shoot such a detailed picture of the moon?

    it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that that wasn't shot with the camera per se.

    I just want to know what else is needed so that I can use my 5700 to shoot a similar one.

    You've seen from my moon picture posted in this thread that my 5700 alone cannot make it but I very much like to shoot one with great details with my camera.

    Don't ask a newbie like me who is also trying to find out. I only started learning Photoshop about 3 months ago.

    Ask those who have posted their beautifully detailed moon pictures.

    As far as I know (read from here previously : http://www.photozone.de/3Technology/lenstec5.htm ), mirror lenses are the "cheapo" versions of long focal length lenses because they use mirrors to simulate the long focal length and therefore the images formed are not only not as clear and sharp but also suffers from some defects.

    Any reason to use 1/500 at ISO 400 instead of 1/125 at ISO 100 (theoretically same exposure)?

    not really....mirror lens can be sharp and clear when focus properly, but the contrast is lower, slower (bigger f value), need to MF and has unnatural "bokeh".

    advantage is that mirror lens is cheap, small and light, u wont see any purple fringe (ie chromatic abbreviation) like those refractive lenses.

    there are APO lenses that has less CA problem, but those lenses cost a bomb and they are big and heavy.

    because the image from 350D still very clean at ISO400

    I use 500-800 most of the time, and mostly ISO3200 for astrophoto

    Since the moon is lit by the sun I expose as if it was daytime.
