Great focus and detail.

It's a little dark on my laptop screen.

Looks dark on my screen too. Focus is spot on. Looks like that 50D is pretty nice.

Maybe it is time for me to recalibrate my monitor, thanks for the comments.

Added: Here is a slightly brighter version.

Still a bit dark but nice contrast. Did you use the 400 5.6?

Default Re: Shooting the Moon with my 50D

can you post your settings? I tried this a few nights ago and ended up using ISO 800 to get the shutter speed up to 1/125 at f/11. I thought looking at some of the 'moon rules' I'd have been down at ISO 100 or 200.

Yes I used my 400 with a 1.4 TC.

Below is the EXIF data. The EXIF data shows FL @ 400 mm which is not accurate because I used my 1.4 TC with the pins taped so the actual FL should be 560 mm. Normally for a bright full moon I shoot @ ISO 100, SS 250 @ f/8. I use a tripod along with a remote shutter release.

# Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/40 second = 0.025 second
# Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 8/1 = F8
# Exposure Program = manual control (1)
# ISO Speed Ratings = 100
# Exif Version = 0221
# Original Date/Time = 2008:10:10 00:33:14
# Digitization Date/Time = 2008:10:10 00:33:14
# Shutter Speed Value (APEX) = 5321928/1000000
Shutter Speed (Exposure Time) = 1/40 second
# Aperture Value (APEX) = 6/1
Aperture = F8
# Exposure Bias (EV) = 0/1 = 0
# Max Aperture Value (APEX) = 5/1 = 5
Max Aperture = F5.66
# Metering Mode = spot (3)
# Flash = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
# Focal Length = 400/1 mm = 400 mm should be 560 mm (pins taped on 1.4 TC)
# Last Modified Subsecond Time = 00
# Original Subsecond Time = 00
# Digitized Subsecond Time = 00
# Colour Space = sRGB (1)
# Image Width = 800 pixels
# Image Height = 800 pixels
# Focal Plane X-Resolution = 4752000/894 = 5315.44
# Focal Plane Y-Resolution = 3168000/597 = 5306.53
# Focal Plane X/Y-Resolution Unit = inch (2)
# Custom Rendered = normal process (0)
# Exposure Mode = manual exposure (1)
# White Balance = auto (0)
