the full moon doesn't give the most detail. try it at different phases. f8 at 125th , iso 200 is a good starting place. here's one at 1/2 phase taken with the tammy 300/2.8 hand held with a DS. exif should be in the shot.

another.

you can tell from these that you are fighting a large DR that will be hard to compensate for. i need to try a HDR shot to get all of it.

I like your moon shot - it's quite good.

Kjell - you did have to bring up that old thread. By the way, Roy, if you'll look at the moon shot I posted, you'll see just how horrible the K T6-2X teleconverter was. The interesting thing to me is the part of the picture that was taken without the TC. It's not that bad considering the lens has oil on the aperture blades so it was wide open. I didn't realize it at the time I took the picture, but looking at it gets me once again thinking about getting it fixed.

H., if you are talking about the kiron , you can probably buy 2 of them on eekbay for what it'll cost to have yours fixed.

GF, try f8 and drop the mm on the lens down to 260-280mm. most of these 70-300 zoomswill do better at that magnification.
