Hi, Shakee54.  Thank you for the compliment.   I am using a Fujifilm FinePix HS10.  It is a bridge camera with an attached lens.  This was taken at the 35 mm equivalent of a 700 mm lens.  One thing to remember when you are taking photos of the moon, is you are shooting in bright daylight.  Even though it is usually night time, the Moon is fully exposed to the daylight sun.  I shot this picture at ISO 100, f 5.6 and 1/180th of a second.  Try some settings close to what I used for a start.  With your 5D Mark II and that zoom lens, you shouldn't have any problems getting good moon photos.  I almost always use a tripod, but many people get good moon shots with a hand held camera.  Good luck.

Quoting Shakee54:

Beautiful capture sir, was wondering which lens you used...I shoot with a 5D Mark II and have a 100-400 mm but can't get nearly as much clarity as you have here.

Thank you Bill. It was a wonderful, clear evening.

Quoting Glaswegian:

Fantastic detail on this image! So clear and so precise! I haven't been able to get such clarity so far; but I'll keep trying!
