How about the Looney 11 rule?

Just thought this was interesting, although maybe not too useful in an era when we have LCD screens on every camera.

Here's my go at it. I used the 60D for this one and cropped the heck out of it.

60D
70-200mm f/2.8ii @200mm
f/2.8
1/3200
ISO 3200

What are all those white specks around the Moon?

Don't tell me they're stars; they can't be at that exposure.

Is your camera suffering from a very noisy sensor? Or did you add them manually in Photoshop? Or let Jackson Pollock loose on your image?

If you bump clarity way up in Lightroom those fake star/specks show up.

IMO
+If there is windy, leave IS on even on tripod.
+Use spot metering.
+Auto focus on the moon once then switch that auto focus off.
+Remove any lens filter
+Try boosting ISO to see stars if you could.

The moon is relatively slow, so as long as you faster than 1/10 you are safe.

- Use manual mode
- Dont use metering, it sucks with the moon. Use live view instead.
- ISO 100
- Use a tripod
- Switch off IS

I layered in photoshop, and no, these are not 'all' stars. I bumped the white noise and de-saturated the photo.
