was on my way to back Yishun after work tonight, when this beautiful moon really capture my heart, and i'm decided to try my first attempt on moon shooting. I hv tried different setting like diff ISOs, Apertures, and exposures with my 75-300mm lens and handheld. I hv even cropped most of the empty space as well. Would like to learn more on how to improve my skills. Of cos my this photo cannot compare with those moon shots took by all CS bros out there, but i'm sincerely want to learn from you guys.. Pls C&C and share with me your setting.
btw, my this is my setting for this pic:
ISO 1600, f/8.0, 1/250, 300mm

Thanks a lot

wa, you need a lower iso, there's too much noise
moon shots should be clear
use a tripod!

Oh man... I had tried with ISO 100 and even bulb mode, I still cannot get such clear shot on the moon that can see it surface. All I got were one bright white ball...

May I know how do you guys take such moon shots that can show it surface? Using filter or negative film?

Took some shots last night because of the beautiful moon but it was a total flop. :cry:

Though this shot is taken under higher ISO, but other than the noise, it still pretty well taken.

I notice that if I were to view the first photo under my notebooks LCD (both lenovo & dell), there are lots of noise (somewhat like overexposed photo) but on the Dell Ultrasharp LCD panel, 80% of them are gone. Why? and if so which is the true quality?

u shld probably try underexposing the shot a little. though the cam may register the shot as "correct exposure", its probably because of the dark surroundings. the moon is actually quite bright. ive got some shots of the moon, and they were taken at 1/500s f/4 ISO100.

Thanks for the tips, will try again during the next full moon, ie, the Mid Autum. :bsmilie:

Spot meter on the brightest part of the moon and it's a done deal.

Yeah.. i noticed that as well.. When i first view it on my Samsung LCD TV, i cant see any noise. Until the bro Night86mare commented the photo, i tried to view it again on my CRT, OMG- so much noise :(:confused:

The higher native contrast and resolution of the screen, the more apparent the noise grains.

The good news is that all those grains won't show up in print.

After looking at your photo and others posted, they were awesome. I hv never paid much attention to moon till this period of eclipse. From near, it gives you the cold, silent feel but from afar...looks like rabbit image. Wonderful.:)

I have a quick suggestion for high contrast monitor user. Increase the gamma by 10pt will make the serious noise obvious. If there isn't, then it can be assumed clean. Standard MSPhoto Editor will do too.
