The moon

I took these photos a couple of nights ago (30th September) with the digital camera – my first attempt at the moon with the Canon!  Although they’re not amazing pictures in terms of sharpness etc., I’m quite pleased with them as a first attempt.  The first few pictures I took were totally black – nothing in them at all – but I’ve learned enough recently to know what I needed to adjust (slower shutter speed, higher ISO) in order to get some more light into the picture.  A good start!

I’ve just put resized pictures up here because they’re actually HUGE at full size (2MB each and over 3000 pixels wide).
