I used an Orion SteadyPix Camera Mount and connected my Sony HX9 to it. I took just a single 1 second exposure. It was very foggy out so that's why there is a bit of haze to the right of the photo. Considering it's only my 3rd moon photo and all I had to do was sharpen it just a touch in iPhoto on my iPhone I'm pretty happy with it. :) Hoping for clear skies soon and this winter to be over!
