That's a beautiful shot Chris,there's a nice pinkish hue to the moon,so I'm guessing you used a filter?

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"

Thanks for the encouraging words.

I am fairly sure the colour is being introduced in the camera. The focus and exposure are automatic, I have no way of manually setting them. All I have done with the image is recompress to fit in the file upload size limit. Maybe I should post pro to adjust colour and contrast. And I don't use a filter, maybe that would help when the moon is more than 1/4 full.

I will keep experimenting, although I'm sure at some point I'll have to consider a way of mounting the camera.

If only I could find a way of taking pictures with the smaller focal length lenses. (All I end up with is a bright fuzzy blob if I go below 15mm.) Oh well....onwards Moriarty !!
