Had a hard time getting a good picture of the moon last night. Any settings thought on picking up a low light picture like this. I was using a 150-500mm lens.

    Pretty Good pic! My sorry little tablet display hints at a touch of Coma/Chromatic aberration, as the upper Right limb has the teeniest blue outline, and the Lower Left limb might have just a hint of Red. Function of Your Lens. You used a tripod, and either the release was timed, or Delay is enough to eliminate shake.

    About the only suggestion I could make would be to take a series of shots next time you get good seeing, and using aperture as primary, keep stopping down till the image is wonky. Long exposures will run you into smearing of the image as the things move. Just before that will yeild the most detailed shot your equipment can make.

    FrancF is the "Real" Astronomer among those I know in this group.

    That's all I got.

    It's really hard to take photos of something that doesn't exist.

    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Take a series of pictures, like 10 or even 20, and then "layer" them. Digital photography is imprecise, each image is slightly different due to the image sensor. Layering removes this imprecision. There's free layering software out there which is pretty good. The more pictures in the layer, the better the image.

    The software automatically aligns each photo based on reference points in the subject.

    Very cool!
    Enemies of armed self-defense focus on the gun. They ignore the person protected with that gun.

    Your zoom lens has many optical elements, handy yes but sacrifices definition and clarity. Having fewer elements, a fixed focus lens will serve you much better.
