    No - wrong direction for that.

    Yeah yeah, I know way to much ISO... was trying to get a sharper image but I think 800 is way to much... Joke is I have my camera set up oustside plugged into my android tablet and controlling it from my PC

    Told you I am lazy tonight.....

    Very cool pic.

    Bit off topic but what is a decent camera to get? I don't know a whole lot about the models.

    I wish the dam clouds/mist or whatever that crap is in the air, can go away so I can continue playing

    You could do what most people seem to be doing and just max out the sharpness slider!

    I was more interested in the ring than the moon itself. I don't recall ever seeing it before, at least not as pronounced.

    These are just pics of the moon like it would look on any other day?

    Supermoon needs context and scale, I saw these which were quite neat: http://www.news24.com/Multimedia/Wor...rmoon-20120507

    Nice photo, koeksGHT! The odd mist was a little irritating but I already saw many great clean moon shots.

    This was my attempt from last night, not as sharp as some of the others.

    I took it at 300mm , 100 ISO, f/5.6 , 1/320 on my Canon EOS 1100D...

    Is it due to the lower pixel ratio than the more upmarket DSLR`s or did i do someting wrong ???

    From my side you did great, not that I am a pro or anything, but as a fellow noob I know how hard it is to get a decent shot like the pro's in here.
    Oh and my 450D with 300mm is just about the same gear, only thing where I had a little help was with focus, I used an Android tablet with DSLR Controller via USB to focus

    Hi

    I'm not a pro, but in my humble experience shooting the moon I can recommend you try the following:

    You should try shooting at higher f-stops.
    The higher the aperture the more depth of field you will have.
    You should get better detail on the moon.
    I also have a 1100D and I believe you can push it up to f/22 with a 300mm lens.
    Just remember that increasing the aperture you will get less light, so you need to compensate with either decreasing your shutter speed or shooting at higher iso's.
    Since you have to shoot fast, because the moon is moving (your 1/320 seems to be fine), you are only left with shooting at a higher iso. (maybe 200 or 400).

    Also try focusing manually with the lens then switching the display on at the back of your camera.
    There you can zoom into your picture I believe up to 10x to double check that you are 100% in focus.

    Hope this helps you or someone to some extend.
    Enjoy.
