I managed to get a shot of the "supermoon" tonight from my son's roof-window. I balanced the camera on a mini tripod, the legs didn't properly fit the window ledge so I had to handhold one of the legs. I used Aperture priority mode and spot metering on the camera to get the exposure of the moon's surface correct against the dark space. I also used the digital zoom capability, which explains some of the noise in the quality of the photo. For my first shot of the moon with my new camera I don't think this is a bad attempt. Clouds obscured the moon just after I took this shot.
