I ended up shooting in full manual mode because I had to keep adjusting different things so that the pictures weren't way too dark or entirely blown out.
... And then one of the legs of my tripod broke off right where it joins the base where the camera sits! To be honest, the tripod wasn't doing me much good because I couldn't get it to tighten and hold my camera at the correct angle anyway!
At any rate, I managed to get a couple of semi decent pictures. I suppose they're not too bad for my first attempt. They give a baseline for future reference, right?
The moon was behind the clouds on this one, but I thought the lighting was pretty cool.
