    Yes, it is difficult even with film camera to capture moon in wide angle scenery. It is always overblown if you want to capture the scenery detail. And the moon is always too small in the scenery to make it looks good. It might better to exclude moon on night scenery.

    With film camera you can do a real double-exposure to capture the moon and the surroundings. With digital, one can only PS it in...

    Might I point TS to the Night Photography forum where there are lots of pointers on exposure at night; one such post directly related to this thread is http://forums.clubsnap.org/showpost....1&postcount=13

    Hey, I shot the moon from my house. By no means is it a good shot but I believe your kit lens can do it.


    18mm, 6sec, f/11, Canon EOS30D, ISO800.

    Personally it looks more like the sun in a dark sky.

    Actually it's not that difficult to get nicely exposed moon with sceneries. You just have to shoot it slightly after sunset where everything is still not so dark and the moon still doesn't appear too bright, or just before sunrise. Sometimes you just have to wait. It's probably only a couple of days in a month where you can do that.

    Try to use mirror lock-up. And shooting near crescent phase usually results in a blurred shot, so wait until a few days past new, when craters are visible.
