I tried to get a photo of the moon last week while it was big and bright, using my D7000 fitted with a Sigma APO DG 70-200mm 1:2.8 II Macro HSM lens.
No luck. I tried several several settings, but sadly I don't remember what I did (common problem with the ederly) - and I deleted the photos, which just showed a disc with no features. I have to say that with my D60 I had no troubles, and got photos of the moon with lots of surface features, so I am guessing that I did something stupid with the D7000 and/or the Sigma.
What settings would you Nikonians suggest that I try?

Thank you, Nikonians!
