This is the first time I have tried taking a picture of the moon.
I have to admit it took a bit of experimentation to get even this humble result.

Canon 30D
Sigma 70-300

A very nice effort given your equipment's limits. Obviously, you had to crop it -- with a very nice and sharp result.

Thank you Bynx and Walter.

Yes, this is a 100% crop with a very small amount of sharpen added.

Nicely done. Please explain what you mean by 100% crop. I don't run accross that term very often--in fact this is the first time I've heard it in a couple years.

It's when you zoom in 100% on your picture and crop it to stay that way(Cut a little part of the picture out into another full size picture).

Hi Cal,


To tell you the truth I have forgotten where I heard the term first.

I just mean that what I posted was cropped out of the original sized picture without any enlarging.
