Very sharp, considering 1000mm (500 & 2XTC ?), 1/15" and in camera sharpness set at "soft". Nice going.

Incredible! I've never been able to manage anything even close to that, ever (of course the 1000mm is longer than anything I have).

Hey Pen,
thanks for mentioning the in camera settings, I didn't know it was set to soft... that explains a lot... I'm still getting use to this camera.

I don't know Harriet, your shot with your new 55-300 looked just as nice to me.
I did cheat a little with "usm" in Photo Shop

oh, Penolta yes, it's the 100-500mm phoenix with the Vivitar 2X.
Thanks dave and Kjell for your kind comments.
:-)

Not bad at all BD,
wish I could hold that steady, I shake like a leaf when I try to hand hold anything over 90mm.:G
I'm guessing from the position of the moon, you took this shot around the same time of the evening as I did, around 6pm?
