    re: Newbie's (blackstar) Moon Shot questions and helps

    @mike, Thanks. @Andy, Great info about full moon coming! Thanks @Marilynne, Maybe "Newbie's Moon Shot questions and helps", though I still have other newbie's questions on other topics (I am starting a new discussion on D3500 battery). @Dan, Thanks for sharing your experience and helpful tips. I keep thinking and working on using camera and shooting photos in a strictly scientific manner (my profession: theoretical scientific research) with little practical, flexible, and "relaxing" sense... but I do know to change a bit now Wish me luck.

    @blackstar, the approach I was explaining is easy but it is utilizing the focus triangle yourself rather than relying on the camera to do it for you. For me it is more fun because you decide what is most important to get the photo you want. Moon shots are a good photo to practice on because you can learn the impact of each leg. Here is a YouTube video that may help.

    Newbie's (blackstar) Moon Shot questions and helps
    Thanks to Andy's full moon reminder, I tried dozen of moon shots tonight (nearly full moon though). Only a couple looked fine and acceptable. I post two of them which are jpg unprocessed or enlarged, cropped (only scaled for attachment):

    No comments? Let me ask some questions for help:
    1. I use a tripod (new) but find it's so difficult (like impossible) to put and fix the moon on the center of the screen (as in the photos). How?
    2. I use AF, but when shutter half-pressed, the moon image looked never focused (a disk of light), and yet the image review shows clear and sharp. Why?
    3. I keep raw files and plan to do some post-editing later to see how it goes. Any suggestions as to what kind of image quality can be improved?

    Thank you
