Sea of Tranquility

How do you guys get such great shots of the moon??!! This was the best I could get before my pet brass monkey was emasculated.

Taken only for Ross' weekly theme of 50:50, probably hardest one so far this year for me!!
Oh your poor monkey!! Did laugh:) I couldn't manage a shot as good as this one.

Better than anything I have ever done!

Skip Tribby wrote me some good techie hints on his shot last November. You'll find it here:

Great moon shot. Looking at your exif your ISO is bit high as is the shutter so you could probably drop both a bit. I usually use around 1/125 and as low ISO as i can get away with. That said I would be quite happy with this shot the craters look great! Fav

Looks good. I struggle to get a good moon photo.

LOL - but it's a great result. I love the ay it's so crystal clear on the edges!

Wow, this is a wonderful moon is not nearly as good, so fav!

Hi Jackie, please be inspired by New Zealand photographer Jackie Ranken's kitchen stories this week for get-pushed

@la_photographic so did I!!! This is a lucky fluke
@carole_sandford I see lots wrong, but thank you
