As they say - when at first you don't succeed, try, try again. I was pretty annoyed at myself last night for blowing the photos of the moon that I was trying to take. I knew tonight I would try again but I had a secret weapon this time. I used the internet and posted a question to a photography forum that I belong to: Digital Grin.
Needless to say many people came to my rescue and the main issue turned out to be that I was over-exposing the moon.
I was determined tonight to get a good shot of the moon
Good news - I had no issues what-so-ever
Bad news - I need longer glass - I had to crop the photo quite a bit to get a nice large image.
