Tonight offers a prime opportunity to photograph the moon

The moon is set to appear about 12% bigger tonight, due to it being closer to the earth tonight. Even sweeter is the fact that it's a full moon.

So set up your tripod and start shooting. Recommended: Tripod!, remote shutter release or use the camera's builtin self-timer. Set your camera to Manual mode and set the f-stop to f/11 and the shutter to 1/250. This should keep everything in focus and give you a good exposure. Of course, try other settings -- experimentation is the essence of the art.
