I saw this Ed about an hour and a half ago and thought ..That would make a great shot...Then the wife called me to supper and I forgot about it! Really good work on this photo!

wow ed!!!
i just came in from shooting a few myself.. i mean it literally.. i haven't seen them yet but hopefully they'll be as good as your's..
i shot mine HHed with a 300mm + 1.4 TC so IQ is questionable..

Ooooh - very nice moon shot! I saw your subject on my way out the door this evening to try my hand at night lights and spent the drive down admiring the moon and Mars. I've never managed to get a shot of the moon as nice as this one.

Well done!

I've been admiring the sight briefly for several nights now, but it's clouded over every day by the time I've got outside with my camera & tripod. Must try harder.

To my eyes (without the camera), Mars looks much larger & brighter relative to the Moon. And when I remember to wear my driving spectacles there's only one Mars! So I when I do get an image, I fear the true relative brightness revealed by your image may disappoint me. My superzoom image of the craters won't be half as good as yours, either.

Superb capture.

I am envious on 2 counts:

1) I wish I could take a photo like that; and
2) I wish the darn clouds would go away!
