Half Moon

Saw this moon up in the night sky and decided to try the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 and its 24x optical zoom. I hand held the camera but used the roof of my car as support. I power zoomed it to the maximum 600mm (equiv.), set the metering to Spot, shooting mode to P and ISO 100. The camera used 1/30 sec. at F5.2. I cropped the image, slightly reduced it to fit the page, sharpened. I took seven shots in all and this is the 5th one in the series and the sharpest one. It’s almost a half moon, jumping cow not included.
