I'm a newbie. I have a Sony alpha nex-F3 with 18-55 and 55-210mm lens. I tried to take picture of moon with the below configuration:

Shutter speed :: 10"

Aperture :: 3.5

I don't know much about this things. Can anyone please guide me if I can take picture of the moon or not? Everytime it is coming as a round white circle.




If you want a decent picture of the moon then you need a long lens

I took this one with my old NEX-5 using a 500mm Reflex lens with a 1.4x teleconverter fitted (ie. equals approx 700mm) and it still isn't that great:
