Shoot the Moon . . . with a DSLR

I was walking my dog this evening and could not help notice the moon was at full-stage. I was watching a photography Youtube video the other day.  I honestly can’t remember which one.  The speaker gave the following setup for shooting the Moon – ISO 100, f/8, 1/250.  He explained the Moon is reflecting sunlight, so it you set up based on shooting in sunlight.

After the dog took care of her important business, I returned her to the house and grabbed the camera.

I took a couple of shots at the settings and felt like they were a little under exposed.  So, I opened up the aperture to f/7.1.  I was much happier with the results.  Her is my best shot!
