I used 1/1oo and f/8 handheld with a 70-200mm lens and a 2X teleconverter.

If that is true you did very well to freeze that! If you were at 200mm with a x2 converter that would be 400 which with most dSLR's other than Canon makes x1.5 = 600 - so rule of thumb dictates a safe shutter speed of 600th sec!! So I make you possibly 6 times or 6 stops out of comfortable hand held range

Even if it were at the 70mm end it would still be best at 210th sec in this scenario.

It looks like some editing/PP work has been done to help it along as well.

What can I say
