I will try that today. But can you tell me or link me to the information about how to adjust curves/levels. I don't know much about it

The moon is lit by direct sunlight, so you should start with BDE
(basic daylight exposure). For ISO 200, 1/200, f/16 or ISO 200,
1/800 f/5.6 (equiv).

What aperture value is advised? Is it better to shoot wide open with faster shutter speed?

That being said, it looks like your RAW is pulled back to far? The
whites are pretty dull.

Look here for more info on the moon.

Thanks for the link. I'll look into that.

Good shooting.

"Are you using dark frame subtraction (the "Noise Reduction" function)? If not, l> onger exposures will exhibit noise due to the sensor heating up."

  • I shot it raw. My noise reduction is ON I guess. Does that make a difference? What does noise reduction do by the way? 1/800s is not long exposure, is it?

Thanking your all for your help. I really appreciate it.
