Thanks. About 4 years ago I was in the same place you are. Try manually focusing the moon, it will probably work better unless you have a very long lens. The most important thing you can learn is understanding exposure. Bryan Petersens book will fix you up. About 3 years ago, once I understood it, I started shooting manual. I have a little Digisix meter that gets me in the ball park in new situations but using Sunny16 as an anchor and experience takes care of most things, especially performances and understand the dual exposure of ambient & flash. I have no idea if the meters in my cameras work.
