Brian J. Noggle offers a country Moon in contrast to my recent city Moon. His is a nice panorama, something I rarely have enough backing-away space to manage. --He points out he was working without a tripod, since moonsets wait for nobody.
I cheat; the snapshot I posted is best of four and was achieved by propping the camera on top of a fence. (There is a little crossover between shooting a gun and a camera, you do get better at staying still -- but you'd have to be shooting blackpowder flintlocks or matchlocks to practice the "hold steady" time it takes for a night shot, even with a modern camera and a full moon! The nice thing about digital cameras is, no film; if it take ten snapshots to get one good one, so what?)
