The moon (1)
aminhas (27)
I took this photo early in the morning. The sun was out but it was not too sunny yet. I used 900mm zoom. A tamron 70-300 mm lens, a tamron 2x teleconverter and 1.5x from Nikon D-70. This time I kept the ISO at max i.e. 1600. No I don't have a tripod. The features of the moon are clearer than my previous photos probabliy because I used a higher shutter speed this time.
I looked at couple of other moon shots. Most of them are around f/9.0.
Next time I will reduce the apperture size. That might make the picture sharper. For now the picture looks a little fuzzy at the edges.

I ran this through Noiseware (available from the Internet) to decrease the noise levels. Then I increased the contrast. Hope it helps.
