Howl at the moon . . .

While driving home, I saw the moon in the sky and it looked so beautiful.  When I got home, I ran in and grabbed my camera hoping to get some great shots using my telephoto lens (55-250mm).  Although I'm going to post it, this photo session was a flop.  I couldn't figure out a good setting.  I have really no clue how to focus my telephoto lens (when I took it out to maximum zoom, it was just a blurry mess).  I tried to capture clouds with the moon, but the moon would lose it's detail and just look a ball of light with the clouds nearby.  This will be a challenge I revisit once I read up on shooting the sky at night.

Shot in Manual ~ ISO 6400 ~ f32 ~ 1/200
