Congratulations on the POTD - how did you get that shot?! I can never ever get a great moon shot, and this is superb - it's so HUGE!!! #3617400

Ron Jones 11/22/2006 7:45:11 PM

Thanks, everyone. I really appreciate your nice comments.
Sarah, This is a composite.
The moon is not difficult to shoot. You need a long lens (I used a 350mm) and a sturdy tripod. If you're using film you can use the sunny 16 rule. If you're shooting digital just start somewhere and go up and down (you're not waisting film.)
Ron #3617553
