This was impossible to resist...

Sorry, yes another Moon shot, but with such a clear and bright target who could resist?
OK maybe I need some help with my affliction



Thanks for looking

Nice one Huw.

Have you tried comparing the quality between using the x2 converter and cropping a shot taken without it?

Ciao ... John

Ciao ... John
Thanks John, no I haven't as yet though I did think about it last night but well to be honest I was getting a bit cold
I will trial that at some point but to be honest I'm more than happy with the combination of these two for this sort of shot. I am on the look out for a high quality x1.4 in the FD mount though, that should be interesting to compare.

Thanks Ross
I think a large proportion of photography is taking an opportunity when it presents it'self, though my better half thought I was a bit mad last night

Thanks Roger, that's what amazed me about this lens and tele combination.
I've up loaded a 100% crop of the crater detail in my gallery which shows what it's capable of.

Thanks Ed, I find capturing the Moon fascinating, just wish it wasn't so cold when doing it

Well Huw, you may need something to cure your affliction of shooting the Moon, but there's nothing wrong with your photographic skills.
Brilliant shot, well done.

Huw, I think THAT is the best moon shot I have seen here - and it must be truly amazing on your screen full size image party time lets celebrate

Open the Champers ...

I am sooo bored here ... 2 x miserable teething babies and 2 tired out toddlers who should not nap but one fell asleep playing the KEYBOARD on the rug and the other fell ou of his little chair twice, so I lay him on the rug ... and Nicks off to school pickup - when the darling Teethers will awake ... no alsohol until gone 6pm but I just let my imagination go ...

Huw, its so crackin a shot it brightened up my DAY

Was it last night ?

Thanks again Sailor, I think the cure maybe a little common sense sometimes (it was cold last night)

Chevvy thanks so much for your generous comments, I'm glad it helped you a little when things were dragging this afternoon
Well I guess the littl'uns are away now allowing free access to a myriad liquid refreshment
I'll have a Dalwhinnie btw

PS: Oh yes it was late Monday night, well Tuesday morning actually

If you do get a 1.4x you could try stacking it with the 2x behind. The moon would be filling two thirds of the frame with stacked TCs.
