Okay, let me start the 2nd thread for Moon shots.

This was taken last Saturday where I got to try the ETX90 with effective 1250mm/f13 with the 1.4TC. So that's an effective 1750mm/f18.2 :P + my still limited PP skill RAW>LR1.3

OK, here is one I took late last month, 300mm+1.7xTC, and my limited PP.


And an experiment on a cloudy night a couple weeks ago.

A900 - Sigma 500/7.2 + Sigma 2x Tc
Both Handheld! Second one is about 50 pct crop of the FF (so about the size of the same setup on an A700

1/100s f/18.0 at 1000.0mm iso320 (adjusted for the TC)




Now the excuses why it's not that great as per my usual form (my usual form of excuses not greatness hahaha)
-tripod not used (duh)
-Sky had a bit of a cloudy haze
-and a real one: I have been shooting the moon at the height of the sky, I would like to have a chance to shoot it closer to the horizon where it appears larger. Guess have to work out the logistics

Taken on a 900 with a bigma + 2x telcon. I've scaled this image down however because it was handheld and softer than I'd like.

The 900+VG+2 Batteries+Bigma+Sigma2xtelcon = HEAVY :)

When we actually get to see the moon again I'll pull out the tripod

BTW - really like the previous shot!

Unless myself and Patrick Moore are very much mistaken the moon is the same size no matter where it is in the sky - it just appears larger as you say

You mean to say it doesn't grow and shrink?
But yes, when its off to the east of me (northern NJ looking toward NYC) and low in the sky it appears much larger. Have to try to go to a lookout some clear moony night.
