How easy is it to photograph the moon? The answer is not that easy at all. Most people tend to see the blackness of the night sky and this shining orb and get the settings on their camera wrong. From too wide an aperture to too slow a shutter speed. But with some simple advice you can take a good photograph of the moon with just a normal DSLR, with a 200mm lens.
Remember that the Moon is really really bright; so with camera setting on ISO:200 – f/8 – 1/500 of a second, you should have produced a rather good image once cropped down.
