We had an especially clear moon last night, and I wanted to experiment a little with a new tripod head, so I put the 2X Sigma TC on my Bigma. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the camera rotated to a high enough angle, so I wound up shooting hand-held. I shot RAW, so in PP, I decided to manipulate the white balance and came up with this.

Very cool Paul! I'm amazed that for a 500mm with a 2X converter, the hand held shot turned out so well! Great caption too!

Interesting interpretation of a much-photographed subject. Makes it interesting, and the detail is very good, considering the hand holding.

1000mm hand held, that is amazing.
