Another one that's pretty bad. Though, you can kind of see the craters along the line between the light and dark. I can't remember what it's called to save my life. still, the 200mm is most certainly WAY too short of a focal length. I cropped the living daylights out of it and there's some major pixilation as you can tell.

why you use S mode? we all told you to use "M" mode. :)

The fault in the shots you posted Ogre1231 is a slooooow shutter speed. Use manual mode like suggested above in previous posts. 6 seconds and 1/25 are way too slow....the moon is reflecting the sunlight so it's almost like taking a picture of the sun and exposing the surface to get detail. You'll get an exposure soon enough if the clouds cooperate with you. ;) Good luck.

Yeah, I realize that now. I haven't had an opportunity to take pictures since my first bit of shenanigans. I plan on putting to use the information I've learned as soon as the damned clouds let me.

This is what you can expect to obtain with the 70-200.
I've taken it at 1500mt, during a crystal clear night. 100% crop.

I'm still waiting on the clouds to give me an opportunity to try to shoot again.
