I looked at the ones I took briefly in RSE. I think they are nothing compared to the ones I took in July. It was so windy that I could tell they wouldn't come out - just looking through the finder without even touching the camera.

I used the2 second self timer with a cable release and my heaviest tripod and they are still blurry. Maybe a 50 pound tripod with an additional tele lens stabilizer would have worked :sad:

One shot has a cloud passing in front of the moon - maybethat one will look nice - I'll post it later.

OK - here two of mine. Not as sharp as usual, too windy. I didn't even bother to fix them much and only did a little USM after resizing. Colors are as it came out of camera (The first one was really that yellow)

First one: Vivitar 120-600 @ 600mm

Second one: Vivitar 120-600 @ 600mm (with Vivitar MFC = 1200mm ?)

Sometimes people are like verwolves at full moon? So do I- when I see a nice sky with full Moon I always feel an itch- although haven't longer lens than rather decent DA50-200 with Kenko 1.5x TC I always give it a try :-)
This week one is here:



Best and happy sharing plus hoping to boost my skills for better pics :-), JR

Couldn't resist, when I walked the dog for the night pee. Has been cloudy all day, so I was a bit surprised to see it at all. Thanks for the alert, Roy.

Thanks for posting yours - I knew someone was going to come along and post something with one of those really long lenses. I noticed you used f13 - I think mine would be better if I had used a smaller aperture. I'll see about re-shooting Monday before going to work (though it is hard to remember everything about the camera at 4 am).

Oh yes - this lens is at least 25 years old. It doesn't even have an "A" setting on the aperture ring.

OK - tried it again. Rode the bike up into the mountains north of Phoenix and set up my tripod and the DL with the Vivitar 120-600mm.









And then a little later, at home from the backyard:
