Pentax Q S1 shot of Moon with Nikon 80-200 2.8 lens adapted
Lens: Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 Camera: Q-S1 Photo Location: Westchester, NY ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/320s Aperture: F8

I took this shot of the moon last night with my Q S1 and adapter to Nikon lens 80-200f 2.8.
On a tripod of course. I had trouble finding the moon on the lcd and then it just looked like a fuzz ball, even though the pictures were in focus.
I was able to manually focus by seeing a star in the fram which did focus, plus I could see the ball getting bigger and smaller so I could figure out when it was in focus. On manual I could make exposure adjustments necessary. How does it look?
