    Hmm.. in my experience you'll need at least a 200mm lens (the higher the better), a tripod, and a camera that can count-down.

    And if anything I would also just crop it enough without pixelating.

    Check out this moon-related DPS link for more info: http://digital-photography-school.com/?s=moon

    Hope this helps. :ugeek:

    I thought so! :lol:

    Hmm.. I don't think it's possible to get an up close shot of it with a P2V.. it'll more than likely be like a white speck unless someone could prove me wrong. :lol:

    White speck. The lens is too wide to show detail on something so far away. The amount of crap floating in the air/atmosphere will also detract from the clarity.

    At 2:10 you will see the moon in this video. Bright but just a dot.

    With a better FPV system and longer battery life you could probably get a little closer. That might help. :)

    Fly it about a mile or so away from the moon. Record in 2.7k wide.
