Need help shooting the moon on GX1 / MFT
Apr 20, 2013

I decided to have a go at a moon shot tonight as it was a clearish sky and although not a full moon it was large and bright. As this was my first attempt at this I followed these instructions but sadly the results are not as I hoped.

I wanted a nice clear moon shot as I've seen others produce with Micro Four Thirds cameras.

I was using a Panasonic GX1 with a Panasonic 45-200 lens. The camera was positioned on a tripod on solid and even stone ground. There was very little light around me as I live in the countryside and I turned all the lights off. I also used a remote shutter release. I used the settings as per the instructions in the link above however that didn't work so I switched to bulb mode for the shutter and I changed the aperture to f/22.

Could anyone advise on where I've gone wrong or on the settings I should be using for the above setup please?
