I told him what I was trying to photograph and with what. First thing he told me was I had chosen the hardest things to first try to photograph with telephoto lens… the moon. He gave me some good tutoring, and agreed when I told him I had to ditch the flimsy tripod and get a more sturdy, steady one. I have it now. :) Learned much, and will put what I have learned to good use…. but not right now. I’m quite tired.
