Not bad.  The full Moon can be a tough cookie because it is so bright and there is little contrast.

It was like looking into the Sun, everything black then you get this overwhelming bright light then bam blinded by the light. I use 2 filters moon and nd, 1 goes on the cam. I use the other on the 4mm ep. I won't be doing a lot of the Full moon, It's just too darn bright for me , I do look around after videoing and that moon just blows my eyeballs to the point where I see spots. Ronnie
