Brought out my older 400mm f3.5 lens, and the 2x TC.

 

Not to bad an image.  I am impressed.  Not easy to focus.

Not bad at all.  Makes me want to break out the 400/4 Tamron, put it on the F3 and shoot some Velvia with long exposures.

 

Nice job!!!

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Thanks, Don.

Tip, though...very short exposures. The faster the shutter the better. The slightest vibration and you have a blurry image.

I usually shoot the moon between 1/300 to 1/500.

Nice shot Art, surprised you had trouble with AF my P900 for some reason just locks on the moon with no issues.

God bless all those in harms way and Go Navy!

I think Arts 400 is manual focus.

I usually shoot the moon at f8, 1/125. One half dozen ways.

Thanks, Dennis.

Way back when I used to MF the moon with my D200/700 with a 500 f4p and 1.4 TC I found the key for me was a rock solid tripod, sand bag and a bit of luck! :P

Oh yea, no truer words spoken.

 

Any slight vibration makes it next to impossible to focus.  I used my manfroto and it warbles like a Weeble!
