Land of the Midnight Sun, Er, Moon

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to photograph a full moon. I'm sure it has something to do with camera speed and aperture and perhaps a good-quality lens . . . elements of photography that I know nothing about. Why can't Canon just make an automatic feature with a tiny icon of a moon that I can flip to on the top of my camera?

I've tried and failed on numerous evenings to capture the scope and majesty of a brilliant lunar orb hanging in a purple sky.

What a stunning white dot. And so tiny.

The fact that the moon looks so big even without some high tech fancy camera setting is impressive. My pictures of the moon look like little pinpricks. While we're making requests, I would also like a "clean faces" setting on my camera.

Tiny? I think it looks huge! That's not a bad picture. Although it is missing some of those great moonish qualities...
