Hey, I just got a new camera (Sony a3000) and I was wondering what is the best way to take moon pictures? I probably don't have the best cam (I only have the lense that came with it) to take moon pics, but I'm trying to work with what I have and I don't know much about the diff functions, like what works best with what. All I know is that the point and shoot won't work and that it has to be in manual and I thought a low ISO, but when I tried that, my shots still just turned out as a ball of white (no distinction of the moon). Maybe it's because I don't have a tripod and the simple movement blurred all the white together? Sorry for the long message, I just came across this picture and since it was so amazing, I wanted to get some pointers! Thanks.
actually it is impossible to take a picture of the Moon like this one at once You have to shoot twice at different exposures or there will be only the Moon without clouds or the Moon as a glowing white(yellow) pancake. and thanks to all
