Thank you very much Linda for your nice comment.
My Lens are Nikon 70-300, with VR, (vibration resistant), but also mainly has IS (Image Stabilization). That works like Magic. You don't worry about Camera shake. all my Moon shots are just hand held. Except for Moon Eclipses, where I need the tripod for longer exposures.
They do make same Lens equivalent for your Canon, also with VR & IS.

Wow, Gil! A really lovely moonrise! Such beautiful composition with that fantastic New Mexico terrain! You also captured wonderful detail on that heavenly body itself. Debbie mentioned your lens; what lens do you use for these GREAT moon shots and the detail you achieve?

CONGRATULATIONS, Gil on an amazing AC and CONGRATULATIONS on the superb WORLD VIEW selection!!

I just checked our weather forecast here for March 8th when there will be a full moon and we're supposed to be completely clear. Hope your weather cooperates so you can try for a full moon in that valley-framing!! Good luck!!

Thank you very much Gardner, Katy, Steve, Trudy, and Lori for your great comments.
Did not have to wait for it, it was right there as I got to that point. Happens often, but This was better timing. I'd like to catch it just as it is getting dusk or anytime shortly after sunset. That should happen in a couple or 3 days. I might even go there tues and see if it happens then. Years ago I did catch it after dark, but didn't have a good camera then.
