I stabilized the camera as much as I could on top of our outdoor grill. The problem was my own heartbeat. Kek!

Use your arms to create a triangle to support your hands. I think you did amazingly well.

Thanks for the tip, fren. It's surprisingly hard to take good photos of the moon. I've tried using my tripod, but it isn't steady enough. Just pushing the button to take the photo causes enough motion to blur the photo. Not to mention, it's hard to frame the moon using a tripod, as you don't realize how fast it's moving. By the time you're set up, the moon has already moved out of the position you wanted it in.

I haven't used a tripod that much but go to a camera shop and see what they suggest. There are bulbs you can get that will push the button for you. I know you can use a very short delay between clicking and the actual shot, but that won't work with something that's moving. Clicking slowly while concentrating on not moving the camera helps.

Yeah, I've thought the same thing about using a bulb. It's probably the only way you could get the shot. Not sure, though, whether one can be used with the camera I have.
