    Nightlife?

    Not sure if this is the right forum, but I wanted to share my progression with you all on shooting the moon.

    Heres my first attempt



    After looking at that I was discouraged, so months later... gave it another shot.


    Enjoy, comment appreciated and critique accepted.

    wow, I would say you deffinately got what you were looking for the second time. How long of an exposure did you have to use to get that level of clarity?

    The new shot is much better - now you're starting to get some surface detail.

    I think most of us who have attempted a moon shot, overexposed it the first time. You'd think that because it's dark you need a longer exposure. That's a huge difference between your first and second shots. Strange how it got turned upside down. You're not in Australia, are you?

    most attempts I have made at getting the moon come out like your first one.. I guess maybe I need to try again. LOL.
