When there's a full moon and a lens to try, what to do? 1/400 sec, f6.3, 100% crop, pp:ed in CS3. Good enough to keep the lens?

Hi Kjell, that looks like a very good photo on my monitor. How about a non-full moon shot?

cheers

I don't mind at all, bb2. This forum is about sharing, isn't it?

Tripod helps, but the moon actally moves so fast that a 1/2 sec exposure will give you blur anyway. Hard to believe till you've seen it.

And an opportunity to try the new Pentax Rear Converter A 1.4X-L with the A* 600mm lens @f7.1 1/60 sec ISO 400. Quite convincing, nothing wrongwith the converter:

Well I do not even have a tripod not to mention something so state of the art type that you need for this kind of shots. Job well done.

That's some focal length with the A*600. The F*300 sure sounds like an awesome lens - I'd love to be able to 1) find one, and 2) afford one.

Kjell that looks rather good on my ordinary work monitor. Look forward to seeing it this evening on the better home monitor. Cheers
