The Moon

I have always wanted to photograph the moon along with the ‘features’ – the dark spots etc on the surface of moon. Here is a photograph that I finally took recently:

Not bad, but I guess there is room for improvement. Maybe, a shot of the not-so-full moon would look better. Also, I came to know after I took this shot that camera setting advised for such a shot is f/11 1/250 seconds. I will be trying these, and posting here in case I get a better picture.

UPDATE 22nd Sep 2008: I have a new shot, much better compared to above:

I used 1/60 sec at the smallest aperture available, ISO 80.
