How to Shoot the Moon

A friend on flickr recently used these settings to capture an amazing photograph of the moon:

Exposure: 0.005 sec (1/200)
Aperture: f/5.6
Focal Length: 300 mm
ISO Speed: 400
Exposure Bias: +1/3 EV
Flash: Off
Exposure Mode: Auto
White Balance: Manual

Proof that these settings will work.
