Moon Photography Tips

"Moon photography can be one of the most fun, yet one of the most aggravating, projects to tackle. You’ve probably seen those gorgeous photos on calendars, wall posters and all over the web. The moon, full as can be, hovering over a wonderful landscape. While some of them are put together in Photoshop, most you will find are real photos."
I've been trying to get some moon shots myself lately, but the weather has been less than kind. Due to moon phases, you only get so many days each month to try to shoot the moon at the location you want. All it needs is a bad day to really screw with your chances. The article covers the basics, but I do stress the need for some decent telephotos; 400mm (or equivalent) is the minimum if you want a decent-sized moon!
