I started shooting moon photos many years ago, and was never good at it.  As of late with my Pentax X5, which did not get very good ratings, I have found the moon the be a favorite night of shooting for me.  I love my X5 and would recommend it to anyone.  It was inexpensive.  Once you learn the proper setting on your camera you will be amazed what you can do.

Make sure you have a tripod and know how to use the delay function or a remote button so you can insure there is no shaking of the camera.  You also need to consider the Earth and Moon rotation.  You will be following it as it travels across the sky.  You will need to adjust your camera every few photos you take.  One thing I like about my Pentax is the adjustable viewer screen.  I can put it on the tripod and not have to bend my neck in all funky positions to see the screen and snap a shot.

If you should have any questions, please feel free to get a hold of me.

I hope you enjoy our section of Space.

I have been telling people to save their, what they consider “bad shots,” and take a closer look them when they have some down time, to see if the photo shows something they may not have seen when they first looked at it.

The photo above is a classic example of this.  I basically disregarded this photo and put it in a file of pics which are considered “bad.”  I took a thorough look of it and some others and noticed it was not a good pic by my regular standards, which are what I would consider “high” when it comes to photography, and focused on the left side of the photo where the craters are.  You can see each crater as if you were closer to it.

Click on my picture which will increase it to actual size, 3189 x 2582 pixels.  Decrease the size of the picture or just use the sliders on the bottom and right side which will move the picture to the right and left and up and down.  The craters on this photo are amazing in this view.  This is another reason why I love to take pics of the moon.
