I wonder why the moon doesn't rotate?? Have the astronauts ever taken photos of the dark side?

I've just been mooned by LTZ470.

You finally caused me to order the LT55 and adapter.

What camera bag did you finally decide on?
I'm looking at the Crumpler 5 or 6. Is there an "equivalent" type bag that a bit cheaper?

Are these moon shots possible without a teleconverter?

Here's one handheld with just the optical zoom (+EZ zoom). So I reckon it's possible...
