Absolutely stunning picture Greg
Nice one Greg. I love the colour you have got!
You did really well here Greg! The moon is a tricky subject to capture. The key to great moon photography is capturing the surface textures.When you're out shooting the moon again, try the following settings as a base... ISO 100, f/11 and shutter speed to 1/125. Set your lens to manual focus. Be careful of infinity focus, as some lenses allow focusing beyond infinity. Then use your live view, zoomed in, to get correct focus. If the result is too dark or too bright, adjust the ISO accordingly.If money allows in the future, look at getting yourself a 2x teleconverter. This will allow you to get amazing close-ups.I hope this helps. Keep at it!
