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.
