Nikon P510 - Wonderful for detailed moon photos

Post-processing Details:

Using my 'old' Windows Live Photo Gallery, I tweaked contrast to reveal more detail, while preserving the blur of palm tree fronds.

Image Details:

Today has been incredible weather-wise; huge billowy white clouds like I've never seen here were beautiful, but assured me "no moon photos tonight"! Yet by sunset the storm -- with thunder, lightning, hail & rain -- had moved east. I nearly forgot how early the moonrise would be until a friend sent a text to "look outside"!
