    Nice one. I noticed the moon was shining brightly... might be time again. I don't think I have tried to shoot the moon with anything except a superzoom and just once, with my K200d and a tamron 70-300. Neither were that successful.

    Sue-I found that setting the aperture to f8 and the camera to manual, take a few shots, through a range of shutter speeds and picking the best exposed image of the lot. (Program or audio mode usually does not work)

    Thanks for that, BP. Perhaps tonight. Or maybe when the weather is warmer :)
