Not really motorcycle related but it's too cold and icy for me right now so eff it.

Don't have quite the lense or the megapixels for moon photography, but while I shop for a newer DSLR I've decided to practice on the one I have, which is a perfectly good camera. I'm just spoiled.

Anyway, I tried shooting the moon:

This is what it looks like when I take a picture of the moon lmao:
Hehe it's hard to do, and unlike many other kinds of shots the right equipment can really make a difference. My shot is a crop: the full picture looks like lots of black sky with a small moon in the middle, even at 200mm. I shot it at ISO 1600 (probably not necessary, but I was hand-holding), 1/1250 shutter, f5.6. It took several tries to dial it in! The trick though with any camera is shoot like it's daylight, because it basically is (the sun reflecting off the moon).

Looks good Id print it up and frame it
Thanks! I might just.

Nice!

Here is a photo I took of the moon with an old Nikon CoolPix 990 pointed through one of the eyepieces of my 25X binoculars:

Really need a longer lens, or maybe just some more megapixels. Been eyeing the D7200 for a while now...
