Another of the vernal equinox variety. I was shooting some sunset test photos yesterday and when I turned to leave the moon was directly behind me. I posted an unedited/uncropped version in the hate my camera thread, this is after a bit of touch up.

Anyone have any tricks for focusing with the moon. I've had a few attempts however I haven't been happy with the results so far. Is there a liveview boost setting that needs to be disabled?

Northern Thailand has been under a heavy haze of pollution from farmers burning stubble for the last several weeks. Plus temperatures of 104-106F but got a slight reprieve with light rains which cleared the skies enough to get this twilight photo of the moon. E-M1, Pany 100-300mm @300, 50% crop.

I use the oly 300f4, iso 200, minimum 400th second and f8 or f11, single af spot and spot meter. Set your focus point at the edge of the moon make minor adjustments from there good luck and fave fun.
