One Small Aperture for Man, One Giant Step for Photography!

Finally caught the moon using the right settings with the Canon 55-250. I've tried this several times but it ended up as a huge blot of light. After researching more and viewing other moon shots here in Flickr, found the trick was to shoot using a high shutter speed, small aperture, and low ISO. I was initially shooting in Manual mode and trying to get a 0 EV like i always do but the subject and background was throwing off the camera. Check the EXIF data for more info. Hope this helps :)

 

There you go! The cool thing about this is.. no tripod!
