The Moon (second try)
Lens: 55-300 ED Camera: Pentax Kx Photo Location: Gahanna, Oh ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/15s Aperture: F13.5

Here are a few pictures of the moon (obviously.) It's been cropped a bit. I bought my kit with the 55-300 lens, but never had much use for it. I think it's a bit over-sharpened, but I was really happy with the textures. I appreciate any commentary.

Thank you for the comments! Getting a shot of the moon is like trying to take a picture of a light bulb. As long as the moon wasn't full (and let the background go black), I was able to get the details on the surface.
