Actually, on a small sensor camera like the G9, diffraction will noticeably soften the image at f/8 or smaller. And the G9 only stops down to f/8 at smallest.Shooting at f/5 on the G9 is probably a safe bet.I recently shot the full moon on a clear night with these settings:f/16, 1/180 sec., ISO 800The equivalent exposures would be:f/5, 1/960 s, 400f/5, 1/480 s, 200(hopefully I've done my math right )
Give it a go at other phases as well. More contrast and more detail when shooting a crescent moon.
Bk, you are right about the noise at higher than say ISO 200 which I knew to avoid. Interestingly, once I got a decent jpg I did take several RAW shots at the same settings. For some reason they were horrible when compared with the jpg shots. I have limited skills manipulating RAW photos, but for some reason out of the box they were blurred and did not show any detail. How did I screw up?Al
Yup, no offense taken and I have a heck of a learning curve for sure. ZoomBrowser and then Photoshop Elements 6.0. It's not intuitive:Thanks again for all of your help.Al
