Default Sony A200 Super tele-combo.

Here are three images taken from the same spot. The first using a 50mm maxxum F1.7. The second image was made with a TMB80SS 504mm f6.3 telescope plus a 1.4x teleconverter. The third image is a 100% crop of the second.

Wow! Very nice results, especially on the crop. Good sharpness. The only thing I have a difference of opinion with is the lighting, could be my monitor. Great results!

you are correct about the lighting. I was using spot metering with the scope and must have hit a highlight that threw off getting a better image. What impressed me most was the fact that no C.A. was added by the teleconverter. I bought this teleconverter from a seller on Ebay for $19.95 plus $4.50 shipping. It is Sony dedicated and he claimed that the auto functions would not work--but they do. Every now and then one gets lucky.
