Very nice shot, may i ask what settings you used on your camera? I have tried to get moon shots with a normal lens. But they never come out right, i have included an example of mine.

I am using the following:

Canon FD 400mm with 2x Converter on a Digital Rebel

With the rebels 1.6x factor, the effective focal length is 1280mm

Thank you

A couple things come to mind. First, that 2x extender is going to cost you a couple f-stops of light loss resulting in a slower shutter speed. You could compensate by using a higher ISO but that introduces the possibility of more noise.

Second, you probably had your focus set to infinity. Most zoom and telephoto lenses are sharpest just a bit before infinity. Try setting focus to infinity and then backing off just a slight bit. It doesn't take much.

Here's my contribution, taken June 13th. Used a Canon S1 IS with a Raynox DCR250 super macro lens, connected to my Meade ETX-125 scope. Some enhancement with PhotoShop Elements:
