"Though the night was made for loving
And the day returns too soon
Yet we'll go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon" (Byron)

Obviously you have a decent camera (or else you wouldn't have been able to capture this much detail at that size), but I think you set the ISO too high - ironically, if you're trying to take a picture of the moon, it's better to have the ISO on the lowest setting possible (100 on my camera), the F-stop relatively small (~14 or 16, whatever works best for you), and the shutter speed at somewhere like one or two seconds.

Wonderful Shot! What I need to set in my camera (Canon PowerShot A470) to get a picture like this

You'll need tripod ;) Pictures like that on big zoom just can't be take by hand.

I am glad you like it ;)

I´m agree :nod: but and the ISO, shutter and aperture settings?

Keep the nice work! :deviation:
