      Hi Athena,
      It took several shots to get one that I liked – plus it was cold! I had to play with ISO sensitivity as well as shutter speed because the moon is so bright, it takes just the right balance of exposure to get the details of the moon without it looking like a washed out white ball of light. But it was fun to try. Thank you!
      Cathy

    great shot, tis hard to do as you seem to have to counter what the camera says. Like you say it is the brightest thing in the sky at night. I will be giving it another go in the spring when it is warmer

      Yes, it is hard to do. The great thing about a digital camera is you can take as many shots as you want to and then delete all the bad ones. I just played with ISO and shutter speed until I started to see the details, then refined. Also, a monopod or tripod helps. I didn’t really have time to set up my tripod, so I used the monopod that I take when I’m hiking. Worked really well. Thanks, Bruce!
