Look at the moon.

I took the camera and the big lens outside tonight and shot some photos of the moon. It was harder to shoot than you might think, because it reads as too dark on most light meters, when in fact it's way too bright. Rather than depend on the light meter, I guestimated the exposure and made a few adjustments. I shot it at the 400mm telephoto length. I would love to try this again with the 2x extender. I want to get as close as possible to it.

So here's the one that turned out the best:

The beautiful moon.

The detail of the craters on the left edge of the moon are striking. I did not know that you could get such detail even with a telephoto lens.

I love the Moon picture, but you do know the moon is all mine. I belongs to me.... :-) I'm just kidding, but I really do tell people this everytime somebody talks about how great the moon looks. I reply with, "You can look at it, but it's mine" hehehe :-) How did you manage to get a photo like that? Please do tell.....
