I tried to get a few moon pics earlier but they didn't come
out very well, anyone got any tips on how to get moon pics
that they would care to share?

Those actually look really nice! I can't tell you for sure what you can do to get better pics, but it looks good!

Tripod without flash, maybe manually step way down on f-stop and have a wide open aperture?

EDIT: No, no, no, how about wide open shutter for a second or so? Sorry, still learning cameras myself. The f-stop IS the aperture. Duh. Realized the dumb error just as I hit "Post Reply."

I wouldn't say there poor shots.

Try the following settings.:ssmile:

f/5.6
Shutter ~ 1/ 40
Metering mode~ pattern
No Flash

Dont go with too long an exposure. Atmospheric turbulance can ruin an otherwise good shot.

Also, remember, you're shooting something illuminated by bright sunlight so it should be exposed as any other brightly lit object.

Its a digital camera. Experiment!

Set your Fstop to 4, focus on infinity, and open the shutter for four seconds. Use a tripod and a cable release.

Inspired by Brookfish.

I decided to give it a go too.:ssmile:

No tripod used for this shot.

THESE ARE THE WORST PICTURES YOU HAVE POSTED YET BROOKFISH!!!

That being said they're still better than any pics I've taken and I still know somebody who would hang them on their wall.
