Hello all, pardon the newbie question. I went out and took several shots of the full moon using my tripod. My camera is a Fuji S5000. I messed around with the shutter speed and aperture. The finale pictures were nothing but white blobs. It was not focusing on the moon (at any zoom rate) and showing the definition. I thought it was because I was not using a telephoto lens but them I started wondering if I was using the wrong settings. I do not remember all the setting I used (a bunch). Any suggestions?

Thanks

hey wkrider,

I'm not familiar with the camera you are using but see you can get these settings and give it a go.

1/200 @ f/8 at 100 ISO the results i got were this using my rebel XT.
