Default Lens Critique

I just bought a TMB80ss telescope to use as a 504 mm f6.3 telephoto lens with my Sony A200. This is the sharpest lens in my bag, by far, and the best color corrected as well. It's a manual lens but no problem for me, having spent most of my photographic life with a light meter in my hand, using split image rangefinder cameras. Photo one is the full image resized. Photo two is a 100% crop. No post processing was done.

If you do this again Id like to see the same shot with a 50mm lens so I can appreciate how much of a blowup your telescope has made.
