That's a morray

Tried using my new camera to take a picture of the moon.

One of these days....

Not bad for a compact digital camera. I should try this some time with a real camera.

Ooh, not bad. I'd always wondered how to get photos of the moon; I'd never been able to get one that I liked, myself. Though I did just get an awesome 50-500mm zoom lens recently. I'll need to give that thing a try.

The most important thing is to use a steady tripod, you can't take a decent picture at night without one.

The longer the lens, the better the image will be. This camera only has 3x optical; an SLR with a 500mm lens will take a much better image. With a long lens like that, you'll probably want to use a remote shutter release to avoid shaking the camera. A remote release is pretty much mandatory if you're using Bulb mode.

You also need to make sure your camera's light meter can do spot-mode or else you'll need to manually set the shutter speed and aperture.
