The Moon - My First Attempt

I attached the 70-300mm to the camera, and that to the tripod and off I fled. I have exactly 15 minutes to ‘shoot the moon’ before heading directly to work. A fella's gotta do what fella's gotta do! Not the best results, but I post for future comparison.

This was f/10, 1/100, ISO 200 - as suggested by article I googled. I used my 70-300 lens.

I need to work on this. Moon was getting way too high and I don't like the halo. Any ideas?

Dropped to f/7

I added this after Lynn visited. Just wondering what caused the blue artifacts on this image. I did have the polarizer on, but I don't think that would have cause an appearance like this.

      One sugestion is not to center the main motive on a photography because loss some interest. For example the last one would be much better if you move the moon to the right. And its a bit overexposed in whites.

      #3 Its well light controled.Well done.

      Halos are dificult to control.
      Maybe doing diferent expositions with diferents photos and fusion it later by HDR or DRI Technic.>For example in #4. Hope I help you a lit.
