    Erm.......you must remember to take a 'black frame' after every fews shots to have accurate results.

    Cos the hotter the DC gets the more hot pixels there are...e.g. a 8 sec exposure black frame taken when warm has more hot pixels than one taken when cool.

    It's actually more of a problem with the 2.7x digital zoom.....at 10x optical zoom the Moon looks a wee bit bigger than a peanut.

    Thanks for the tip Jayan

    Have a look at
    "my" moon
    Took it with C700UZ+C-180

    The C-180 could get u closer, but remember to use unsharp mask.

    Jayan, maybe you can post a guide on how to reduce noise. I'm interested to learn.. do you mean i haf to do this:

    1. take the pic
    2. take a pic wif the lense cover

    then use the software to reduce the noise?
