Start by not calling someone a know it all on your second effing post.

Then, look at the screen you are presented when posting.

Welcome to the forum. Tighten up.

You have a couple of different options to post photos to threads.

When you are creating a post, you will have a toolbox on the left side of your screen. One of the buttons says "Upload images" This will allow you to upload a photo from your computer directly to the forum. You will have to follow the restrictions on size, type, etc that are shown in the window after you click on that button. Forum rules limit you to 2 forum-hosted images per thread, I think.

Other, better option as far as I'm concerned, is to have your image hosted at another site like flickr. You can't use Photobucket anymore, unless you want to pay a lot of money for an account that will allow you to do so. Once it is on an image hosting site, you will need to use whatever procedure works for that site. For flickr, I just select the Share option (icon looks like a curved arrow), select the size I want in the dropdown menu (usually Large 1024 x XXX) under the BBCode tab, then just copy the text shown in the popup. Paste that into your text box here on the forum, and you're all good.

I haven't tried other hosting sites, nor have I tried to use the Embed Image in the toolbox at the left. Photobucket just doesn't work anymore for posting to forums. Even the link shown in your post under the warning image just takes you to the same warning image.

1) Being sarcastic is just another flavor of being rude, which isn't a good way to start out a reputation on a very nice board/community. In other words whether you were being outright rude, or sarcastic, neither are very nice. (sarcasm: a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark)

2) We have an official moon thread here, I suggest you add your contribution there. It will garner alot of discussion and tips you might find helpful.

http://photography-on-the.net ...php?t=803791&goto=n​ewpost

3) My first tip for you is to raise your shutter to at least 1/250th, or faster for that focal length. Don't be afraid to raise your ISO to give you that flexibility, ISO 800 with exposure pushed a bit to the right will help your moon shots. A tripod can help most folks too. I personally don't use a tripod, but I also have handholding techniques that are good up to over 2000mm that I have developed over the years. Also try using live view with the 5x zoom with manual focusing, you might be able to lock in crater detail better.

4) Welcome to POTN :)

Best advice here is not to direct sarcasm at another individual. Probably ever.

A little scarcastic humor in a self deprecating manner helps set the stage. But probably best to avoid it all together until you get to know the mood of a new forum and some of the people get to know you.

Image looks soft. That 300 mm zoom isn't known for being super sharp, but I think you should be able to get a little better with practice. Definitely consider a tripod, mirror lock up, live view 10x manual focus. Also helps to have the moon less full so the shadows on the craters are more pronounced. Get a good shot like that and use it as a baseline. Then you can judge for yourself if your handheld technique is working.

I used a tripod and the timer. I also didn't realize there was already a thread for this. I do apologize.

I often shoot at 1600-2400mm handheld. The first steps are to raise the shutter speeds which means a higher ISO.

I am just trying to give dude a baseline.

I don't use a tripod for moon shots either, but I know what to expect from myself and my gear.
