Adventures in astrophotography

I'm not very good at this (read "at all"), but the moon was so pretty last night that I just had to give it a shot. (Har har.)

The fuzzy orange moon-shaped thing near the top is a reflection in my window. By the time it occurred to me to try a higher resolution the moon had already set. And tonight will probably be cloudy and humid. Oh well.

If you can, force the camera to focus at infinity--for some cameras you have to enter manual focus, for others you select the "mountain" focus, as opposed to the macro "flower" one.

The only focus choices digi has are "normal" and something marked by an icon that looks like a tulip. I think it's just too old and cheap for anything beyond snapshots of people and pretty scenery; I got it before the novelty of digital cameras (digital cameras!) had worn off.

My printer also finally died today. Guess it's time to go gadget shopping. I wonder if I'd get treated less like an idiot at an office supply store than at a Best City Shack?
