Take you camera off the automatic exposure setting. Left to itself, the camera will try to make the black sky a middle gray. You want to treat the moon as a landscape under noon sun. If you think about it, that's all it is. The moon is simply a large rock or mountain, lit by the same sun you get at noon. This is where the "Sunny-16" rule comes in. The proper exposure for a full moon is an aperture of f/16 and a shutter speed of 1/ISO. For example, if your ISO is set for 200, the shutter speed should be about 1/200 second. Any equivalent exposure will work as well, for example f/11 at 1/400. You can then review the picture on your display and adjust accordingly. The sky will go pure black, but that's okay. You're not taking a picture of the sky, but of the moon.

Sony SLT A58 camera lead ins not downloading because my laptop does not recognize the port!


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa:

Very rare, in 35 years I replace maybe 2 to 5 a year out of 1500 to 2000 repairs a year on all major appliances. Make sure you replace it with the exact glass from the manufacturer, usuing your model number. Do not replace with glass from a glass shop.

How do i solve the clock tower key puzzle? another code r on wii


Have you gone upstairs and tried to put the keys in the locks
You need to go upstairs and look at the central clock mechanism.
Put the keys in their specific order, then you have to turn it each the right amount of time. The photos you have taken can help you to figure out that.
Don't forget to speak to Matthew and to look at everything if that's not helping you. You have a JC Valley badge to find in there.
turn keys in this order :
-Moon 1 turn
-sword 4 turns
-rose 6 turns
You can't make the photos stick, you have to memorize the resulting picture or draw it yourself.
By overlaying both photos you a picture of a clock. Notice that three numbers(hours) are marked and that a symbol is next to each of them.
Insert the keys in the order of the marked hours, start with the lowest one.
You can only turn the keys after you've inserted all of them in the correct order. Select a key, hold the A button and twist the remote.
I think the correct order is Sword, Moon, Rose.

hope it helps-
