Hi and here starts the problem ,getting data is at times easy to get ,now the real fun starts because with processing also comes what will it look like when ive done ? ,what tends to happen is because your going to post it on a forum after you have processed it part of you will be processing it for others to look at and not your self , theres as suggested lots of videos to go at on you tube,find some software and learn to use it good luck and the moon is a great place to start .because its as many dark and light areas also as a rule of thumb leave all,sharpening till the end use layers have fun pat

  22. Hi and welcome,from me , great first moon image and looks like the first moon pic thatnevery one tries ,and you gotmamgood one there its always about focus with the moon ,what i do and did the first time round was get focus and then take a couple of shots leav things for a minute or,two and then take another . at that point i would take a dark pic with themend cap on,take it of and slightly move the focus in or which ever and do the same and try it again move the focus slightly make notes in your log book. Or computer of all settings ect now comes the tricky bit editing your fine image Thats down to you one tip tho is to leave all sharpening till the end and dont be tempted to do to much to it , a great first of many great imges pat
