Experiments with Exposure

I have tried several times tried to take a picture of the moon at night. All of these have ended up as overexposed pictures where the moon in nothing more but a bright sphere on the sky. Yet again I decided to experiment a little and dug out my tripod.

After a couple of shots with more or less automatic settings I decided to switch to full manual. All of the pictures below have been taken with ISO100 and aperture size 5.6.

The exposure times are from top left to bottom right as follows:
1 s, 1/4 s, 1/20 s, 1/60 s,
1/125 s, 1/250 s, 1/400 s, 1/800 s,
1/1250 s, 1/2000 s, 1/3200 s and 1/4000 s.

Personaly I think the moons 6-8 are the best ones.
