Nice shot not easy getting the light right with the moon shot. Got the lens right up Tyco's Crater...

That is a really fine capture, Fred.

As has already been said, well exposed, sharp, great detail.

AND yes, the 70-300mm is a fine lens. In the right hands, it produces startling results.

Thankyou for all the commenmts.
Settings
I took about 10 shots with various setting. This was the best.
Shutter priority 1/640 ( hand held ) , ISO 200 . f 6.5.
I think the big one here , it was a very clear sky.


Fred..
