Shooting the moon.......an experiment.

I'm told, photographing the moon is amongst the most difficult challenges a photographer can face, especially to an amateur like me.

Here's my first attempt using my camera at iso 200, manual focus, 1600th of a second, heavily cropped. I'm really pleased with the contrast, I can see details on the moon's surface, but they're not very sharp. I guess that's because in my EVF the moon is a VERY bright object, devoid of detail. It would be easier if I had some visible clouds to actually focus on, but not bad for a first attempt. Now then, it's a total lunar eclipse tonight.........
