Best Shot Monday – 10/1/07

I finally was able to take some pictures of the moon this past week, and of the Harvest Moon no less! It was a lot of fun, but I quickly realized I’m going to need a much bigger lens if I want to get good shots of the moon. It’s just so dang far away! ;oP

This was taken with one of my zoom (kit) lenses at 150 mm, which is as close as I can get. I cropped a TON of black space out of this picture to get it to look like this. In fact, I’ll share the original pre-cropped below so you can see for yourself. Edited to add settings: ISO 200, f 11, 1/250 and here’s a site where I got some tips before I attempted it: Take a picture of the moon.
