I just bought this camera as well, I haven't tried moon shots or fire works, full settings for these are in the scene mode settings. I am liking this camera so far a lot to learn.

Set to spot Focus or averaging.I set Moon mode in scene selections, point n shoot.

Zoom as close as you can and still get good focus. I find less than max zoom to be best. Hold camera steady against a post or put it on a tripod, Set first pressure on shutter button to focus and then snap. Cam will wait a second or two before firing. (don't move cam during this time)

Go to Trim mode and crop to the magnification that you want and save the trimmed pic.

All of the shots that I have put in this topic are hand held against a pergola post.

For fireworks. Select Fireworks mode in scene select and put the cam on a tripod, frame your shot and shoot.
You could also do a night Scene vid or a time laps vid for fireworks.... The Night Scene vid would be best because the time lapse will not capture all moments of the scene and will miss many cracker bursts.

Experiment a bit on street lights and traffic at night to get a feel for the camera. That is the beauty of digital cams. You can practice and learn and then delete all the bad pics or practice runs.

thanks Adrian ss, that's helpful for me as well. I have been reading up on this camera ever since you put your first pic's up, now got it at a good price.

Nice one Jen.
The cocky looks big enough to sort the goanna out.
We get a lot of cockatoos in the yard but I have yet to see one get seriously nasty with anything. They prance around each other a bit and have a bit of a beak bash but do not seem to be all that keen on inflicting a serious injury to each other.

Ahh, the serenity, sometimes you just need some time to yourself.









Other times,  you want to mix it with with some good ol party dudes!








Finally found my first piece of gold (.66gr) with the Zed this year,  I thought I had lost my mojo. tongue
After 8 months off for my double bypass operation. I didn't really understand what an addiction searching for gold is, till I took the 8 months off.  pale

Yes Jen even though the sun is very quiet as far as sunspot activity is concerned it is pumping out some serious electromagnetic and cosmic style radiation lately.
Just like our Easter has been very quiet this year although our daughter came down for a couple of days which was nice as I had not seen her for a while. She scored a gold and silver medal at the International fitness and body building championships at Cronulla last month.
I would put a pic up here but she might rip my head off. Laughing Anyway I am very happy with here success in the sport.
Managed 20 mins of detecting this morning with the SST and scored a ring and a few odds and ends.
