Hi,

I was trying to capture a beautiful full moon yesternight, though on view-finder I could see great textures on the moon but after clicking they textures dimmed and there was glow around the moon.

Pkease suggest me technique to click such pictures during night where I can cut the glow anc capture the details of an illuminated object.
I recently bought a Canon 550 DSLR with a 18-135 lens.

I use spot-metering and spot focus for the moon on my 24x zoom Olympus SZ-30MR P&S.

You may need to read the manual for your camera to find those settings. Generally (for most cameras, DSLR or otherwise), it is the P mode that gives you the chance to get away from the restrictions of plain AUTO. Even with a 300m lens you will still need either Digital Zoom or magnification while post-processing.
