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.

I gave it a shot last night, and it worked out very well. I never tried it with a good tripod and good zoom before. My camera doesn't have a plug for remote cable release, unfortunately. I just used the timer instead. I can get a remote, but never got around to it. I set the shutter and stuff myself, and took a bunch. This one was ISO 200, 1/250sec, f/8, 500mm.

Wow, what kind of camera do you have? That's a really great picture!

Thanks! It's a several-year-old Nikon D70, with a Sigma 50-500mm zoom lens. The lens was costly ($1000), but awesome. :) And a very nice Manfrotto tripod, which helped immensely.

A nice setup. I still prefer film for "Photography" and just bought a (relatively) cheap compact digital (Pentax A30) so I could carry it around and snap pictures of interesting stuff. I suppose one day I'll buy a digital SLR, maybe. The instant feedback of digital is nice, but there's a certain satisfaction in handling film.
