Actually First 'Shot' Doesn't make to much sense, it's my hundredth try best shot yet. I learned the key to a good shot of the moon is not a LTE, but a very fast exposure faster than I typically shoot portraits at (I don't use flashes only 75w/h lights)

Hi Jake,

Nice shot. Like you I have found that trial and error is the best way to get the exposure right. As for post-processing, have you tried playing with the Contrast and Brightness using your favourite image editor?

Bob.

P.S. I put a pair of [url]..[/url] tags around your Flickr link to make it "clickable". Hope that's OK.

I just can't get the right exposure and I don't know how to avoid glare and phantom images...

Can anyone help? I just want to make a decent shot of the moon...
