Full Moon Pics with A57
Jul 4, 2012

Took a couple of pics of the full moon a few mins ago. The moon certainly looks quite large and very close. I used the SAL 55-200mm i got recently with my A57. I didnt have a tripod with me so had to shoot handheld.

I tried different settings and finally what seemed to get decent results was to use focus tracking with the built in 2x camera zoom and a fast shutter speed.

P.S
I did not have a flash handy so could not use a flash to backlight the moon
