+1 The technique you describe in your third paragraph sounds cool, I have never heard of doing something like that. I only know how to have flash on or off. Do you know of a tutorial or something that goes into more detail about how to use flash the way you are describing?

comment Why does the quality of my pictures lower the more I zoom in?
@D. Lambert, I used a lot of settings, for the moon I found the closest ones to what I thought looked decent, was when I had it on the setting that lets me choose shutter speed (and auto adjusts the aperture) and I used between 15 and 25. (think that means 1/15th of a second, not sure tho - it just said 15)

Thanks, it makes more sense now. Between yours and others suggestions, I have a lot of things I can try out.

Thanks, your advice sounds good for shooting (virtually) stationary objects like the moon. What about a fast moving object like a bird, with f/11 and a slower shutter on a tripod, it will not be able to freeze it. Is this something I will not be able to do with my current lens?

A couple questions, what do you mean by 1/focal length for getting sharp pictures and by 1/320th and 1/500

I never considered air debris to be an issue, that makes sense though. I guess I will try f/8 - f/11 at various shutter speeds and see what kind of results I can get. Thanks.
