Took another shot at this tonight, with arguably better results.

Shot with T2i and EF-S 55-250mm lens.
Settings: 1/500, f/5.6, ISO 400

Ace_Club: Did you sharpen in PP or is this an unprocessed image? Also, how much cropping?

I took some fair shots of the moon with a 450d and sigma lens, handheld but ive failed so far with the 600d and canon 55-200mm lens, is it a full moon tonight?

Yes, there was some pp done on this image. As far as cropping, I don't know exactly how much. Definitely more than 50%.

It's a fantastic image either way. I'd be very pleased if I could shoot one as good.

I used my ES 127 refractor. It has a focal length of 952 mm. I used my modded 60D (IR filter removed) hence the reddish tinge that I should have removed in post processing or used custom white balance. I used BYEOS for focusing, exposure, and capture.

Your image of the moon with the lens is much better than I ever achieved with my 70-200 II, EF 300/f4, or 400 5.6, but I never used BYEOS or live view to get the best exposure. One learns over time.

Quick question (apologies if its already been answered earlier in the thread) - assuming I use the same lens, would it make more sense to shoot the moon with a FF (better IQ but shorter reach) or crop (1.6x but poorer IQ)?
