Default Re: My first moon picture...

It has bth, Steven, spot exposure ad full manual.

I just "asked the internet" and the settings I used were the ones generally recommended.
I also read that photographing the full moon gives you flat pics because of the lighting and you do better photographing a waxing or waning moon.

I'll probably try this again with several lenses and definitely with the camera on a tripod and on timed or remote exposure.

Since I have no telescope mounting the camera on one will not be an option and I don't think I will be taking up astro photography anyway It's just that I couldn't resist that (virtually) full moon! Does that say something about me? Ooooowwwwwww...
