"Need D3000 help"
Hello all. Need some assistance. I'm trying to take pictures of the moon tonight but it keeps coming out over exposed. I'm wanting a landscape with the moon but I'm not having any luck. I've used all setting that I can remember. Any tips is appreciated.

The moon itself is a lot brighter than the moon-lit landscape. If the landscape is exposed like you want it, the moon will be blown out. If the moon is exposed well, the landscape will be nothing but black. It's not a matter of the correct settings; you can't get them both.
You could blend two images in Photoshop to get the scene as you want it.
