Re: Can I take picture of Moon with Sony alpha Nex-F3?

Try when the moon is closer to the horizon, and not overly bright. You can shoot at base ISO (200 in your case), f/7.1, 1/80s or so, preferably on tripod. 210mm won't get you very close, but if you can get the focus right, you may be able to crop reasonably well.

This is NEX-3 + 55-210 + 1.7x TC lens (Sony DH1758) and a substantial crop:

The moon had a reddish color to it that night, a reason I drove to a relatively dark parking lot of a nearby park.
