My goal this summer is to capture the moon. I've been researching and researching and there's no exact science to it of course but time is flying by (i.e. nice warm weather to stand in the night for as long as it takes) and I have yet to capture an image that doesn't frustrate me. So...seeking your guidance ... experts and novice's alike!! My tools: Nex6 SEL55210 (it's the longest I have) A Mac computer with only Aperture on it. I've been told to use F22 or thereabouts and longer shutter speeds. I've also been told use faster shutter speeds. The best time to capture the moon is not in it's peak in the night sky, but at moon's first rise when it appears largest. While I live outside of the city, it's more of a small suburban town than nice dark farm land...so capturing the moon on it's initial rise isn't exactly easy. Playing around with that lens got me the pics you see below. While I was pretty excited about the first one when I first took it (being my first true attempt to capture the moon), it's not the end goal. It lacks WOW FACTOR. Not to mention, it's not editing well (very pixelated). Any suggestions on what I can do? Is it really necessary to spend big bucks on Photoshop and different lenses (wouldn't say that's really an option). Help!!
