I'd like to try it. Getting my 70-300 lens tomorrow.
I already tried it once with a 70-300 and it was still not all that close
I know it will be Manual focus....at least
Don't even worry about focusing. Switch to manual, focus to infinity, spot meter, and dial down 2 stops. Shoot from the highest altitude you can find. At 300mm on a non FF sensor, you will get the moon to about 1/6 of your image. If you are shooting high res, you can crop enough to make it look decent.
you'll be surprised at the exposure. its the same as the sun
so if you do iso 100, it'll be f/16 @ 1/100
fools moon - f/11 1/iso
half moon - f/8 1/iso
quarter moon - f/5.6 1/iso
less than quarter moon - why bother
Do you mean 100 ISO?
ISO 100 1/100s
ISO 200 1/200s
ISO 400 1/400s
ISO 800 1/800s
