With it being a bright "super" moon last night seeing any let alone imaging them would probably prove to be quite difficult as the glare from the moon is going to wash a lot of them out. The only thing I can suggest is have a wide angle lens set at its widest setting, point it towards Perseus & fire off some long exposures something like 15 to 25 seconds & you might get lucky & capture one or more. You might have to play with the iso settings & F stop to get better results but I find that iso 1600 seems to work ok for me.

I haven't used my Canon for a few weeks now as I was a bit disappointed with the results. I sold the old lens and bought a second hand Panasonic FZ45 with the proceeds. Just waiting for a chance to get out and use that now. Ho Hummm.

How about a photographic adventure in the Scottish Highlands, the most photogenic AND motorhome friendly region in the UK?

I still have my panasonic FZ45. It is a great camera, I learnt a lot whilst using it.

My photos allow you to see what I saw at the time that I took it....No messing.

Yep, I agree Cal. I had a FZ50 which I stupidly sold to my son! The Canon is fine for general work but the zoom on the 45 is a bit better than the FZ50's and should be better for the birds and wildlife.

I'll get time one of these days and sort out the 2,000 + photos from Oz. It's the processing that takes the time and is still a massive learning curve.
