Moon Shot

I’ve been trying to get a decent shot of the moon for years. This evening the sky was crystal clear and the moon was a brilliant crescent so I tried again. This time I set my camera right and used a tripod. it made all the difference. I used my Nikon D5000 with the following settings: ISO:200, f-Stop 10 and shutter speed at 1/200. I don’t have a zoom so I’m happy with the way it came out.
