    Taking Pictures of the Moon



    Its been full moon this past few day, and I have been trying to get a good shot of the moon. But in all my pictures the moon turns out too bright. I tried different combinations of shutter and aperture adjustments. Still can't get it. Any tips out there?

    Use Sunny 16. That would be 1/125 at iso 100 at f16.

    The exposure of the moon itself is the same as the the open field in a sunny day.

    Come, to a place I know. Where the air is clean and we're both unknown. Maybe, we could capture there, some of all we've lost, in fact never want.

    Use spot meter if your camera has one. And try shooting the moon when it's not full if you want to see the craters more clearly.

    A solid tripod would tremendously help.
