The Moon (compact camera)

Uploader comment: Yes, handheld on a little Canon SX130IS. If you keep the exposure at the same level as you would in daylight, you can indeed get a reasonable shot of the Moon without a tripod.. cropped but full-res, lightly sharpened *don't get me wrong - I still recommend tripods*..

What I should do is take a whole series of shots, from moonrise to moonset, to show how it 'turns' (because of the 23 degree tilt of earth's rotation angle relative to the Moon's orbit..) Then the concept of up and down, north and south gets even more confusing!

I just had to go and check your profile to see if you were from "down under". From my point of view that lunar image is upside down. It seems a bit weird to see the crater Tycho at the "top" of the moon. Nice image, by the way.
