    Wow!!! Amazing shot!

  • Thanks Paul, it still has some cyan around the bottom edge, it is really hard to get a real perfect shot of the moon…

    That is a great view of the moon mate. It can be difficult to take, but you have succeeded admirably.

  • Thanks Davo, yes i agree to many shots of the moon are out of focus, to much heat haze, it is so hard to get right, took me about 20 shots.

    Very nice shot Dion.. There’s a slight difference in phase, maybe a day or two between them.

  • Thanks, yeah maybe, mine was taken on last Sunday…

    Not a bad result for a teleconverter… and the Sony does a nice job too. Great capture.

  • Yes the SAL70-400 is a 4-5.6 so at 2x it makes it a 8-11, still a fast lens for 800mm

    – Puggs

  • also you need a fast lens with the moon, it can move from one side of the view finder to the next in a couple of minutes… I think i had to move the shot about 10 or more times when doing this shoot…
