    120-400 Sigma zoom John. A "snip" of the settings but I did lighten and sharpen a wee bit in Capture as my tripod is in the m/home and had to use my monopod. Not ideal but adequate.

    looks like pretty basic settings and auto focus to boot Ken, obviously the long lens and a clear sky made all the difference. :thumb:

    best i can muster is a Canon 90/300.
    Canon EOS 350D body.

    never actually thought of the moon shot.:Doh:

    mind you, i just mutilated my tripod turning it into a sat dish tripod...never really use it so i fugured get some proper use from it.

    Yep, I have to use "autofocus John as I wear varifocals and even my optician cannot tell me which area of the glasses to use to focus a camera.
    I have tried to beat the Nikon settings many times and the only time I have been successful is snow shots when I overexpose to whiten the snow.
    Enthusiastic ameteur and no expert I am afraid but enjoy playing. :thumb:

    Well when my parent got the Brownie in 1965 for Xmas it was state of the art photography but certainly not captured this moon well:Doh:
