    It can be an uphill battle, to be sure. It always amazes me the variations you can get from time to time. Atmospherics ... geesh.

    I mean, how many times have you looked up, to a crystalized moon and said, "Doggone it, where's my camera, now?" LOL

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    wow, it's been quiet in here the past couple days. Well yesterday was a full moon and it was pretty hazy (as you can tell from the orange glow), but this was probably my best shot of the night (last one too).

    Yes ... it has that very familiar 300mmm look to it.

    There isn't a look you can do ... when it is that time of the month ... and the weather is not your friend.

    I have some lunar eclipse images (MF 500mm) that look oddly like this .. well, kind of ... A half and half effect and slightly defocused. LOL It wasn't my best round of lunar exposures. But, if you look at the proportional difference (this is not a crop), you readily see why you might consider a 500mm for your lunar shots, although there are, indeed, better 500's available than what I used that night.

    Here's a recent (May) lunar shot with the 80-400 zoom, set at 400mm. Again, note the proportionality change between the 500 and the 400. Again, I feel an 800mm would probably be prefect for using the full sensor for the capture.

    Thanks for sharing, that second shot is very nice and crisp and the first shot has a beautiful glow to it that we won't see for a few years (2010 for the next total lunar eclipse).

    But lucky us, there'll be a lunar (partial) and solar (total ) in august!

    That's very nice! Is that with the Tamron lens? (but I think you just got that), so I'm guessing the quantaray 70-300?

    It's very nice!
