I always go out on a clear night to look at the moon, it's an amazing thing to see. These shots are so wonderful, I really love the warm glow and the details in this.

This part mystifies me:
1/800 second
ISO 80
78 mm

How on earth do you get telephoto like that at 78mm????

ISO 80 at 1/800th???

Moma, I have a lot to learn.

Really nicely done.

@MontereyJohn: LOL!!!! You know John, I like that you are not afraid to ask a question. I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability:

1. First of all, the EXIF data does not recognize that I have a 1.7 times tele converter on the camera.

2. I almost always use an ISO of 80. The reason is that the higher the ISO the more digital noise you will get. I've noticed that some cameras have less digital noise than others. This is not one of the strong points for the Sony H9.

3. For a really good definition of focal lengths, go here.

One night, if the sky ever clears, I will have to get out of the lights of the city and try a moon shot. Haven't done that for years. Well, decades.
Very nice detail. Gorgeous.
