Moon shot
Posted By: xs400, 03-17-2008, 11:06 PM

This is my first try at a shot of the moon using a FA 80-320mm with my K100D.

320mm, 1/500, f/8, iso 400, 100% crop

Very nice shot! I love taking pictures of the moon, though it's often hidden behind cloud in my neck of the woods.

Thanks for the cooments.

This shot was not HDR, and the only PP was levels and contrast adjustments. The FA 80-320mm just seems to give interesting color in this shot.

Very nice resolution and colors, indeed! Probably enough light for ISO 200...

The DA 50-200 at 200mm mounted to K20D has the same 100% crop size but doesnt have the resolution of your setup
