Lunar Photography

A colleague of mine took this photo using her prosumer digital camera. I was actually surprised at the quality. It was shot at the limits of the camera's optical and digital zooms but the pic turned out very well I think. Well the best thing with digital cameras is you don't have any film to waste by making a lot of trials to get the exposure just right. Astrophotography is one of those cases where you can't rely on the auto exposure settings. Nice pic. I really want a new DSLR but even then, I would need a good telephoto lens to achieve this effect. I feel so poor right now. :(
