    cool pic!
    you managed to get some detail in the moons surface..nice!

    interesting bit of trivia concerning photographing the moon, that a lot of people dont consider..
    Most of the time, for night photography, you use long exposures..because there is so little light..
    and people just naturally assume the moon requires a long exposure too! wrong!

    For photographing the moon, you use the same exposure you would use for a daylight scene, at high-noon, in full sunlight! because like the daylight scene at noon, the moon is also simply an object lit by the sun!
    anything longer than say 1/60th of a second at f16 will just overexpose the moon and give you a white blob..

    If you are only photographing the moon itself, its fairly easy..
    but if you are photographing the moon in a landscape, the tricky bit is creating a long exposure for the night scene, and a very short exposure for the moon itself!

    Good shot !
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and The American G. I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
