    Default Shot of the moon

    It was a wonderful clear morning so I tried playing with moon shots at daytime.

    Shot with a Nikon D60 with a Sigma 70-300mm DG 1:4-5.6 lens.

    Those are great shots too, Ron. I especially like the full moon at night shot.

    thanks randy and bruce!

    you need a tripod randy. the moon is tricky, only on the 3rd night i got this pix, depends so much on the moon/light itself.

    Awesome pics ! I was wondering whats with everyone taking moon shots. My room mate took them on the same night, and so did a dozen people around the world, thanks to facebook for letting us know. Its kind of attraction to the moon at this particular time of the year.

    Great shots, really! I have a feeling that the moon is so close that it can be touched with a finger....

    Yeah a tripod works wonders.
    Also, if your camera has a timer or remote, use that as well. That way, you can take the shot without touching the camera and induce any form of camera shake.
