Heavenly Moon Cutter!

Okay not really... It was one of those rare nights that the moon was low. I'm always a sucker for night photography.

It's one of those rare nights that I see the moon hovering low over the skyline.

I liked the shot but the moon looked nothing more than a yellow blob. So I focused on getting the moon instead...

150mm w/ 2x digital tele (600mm 135 equivalent), f/5.6, 1/40

The moon was too small for my taste... I guess I have to use something that reaches farther...
500mm (1000mm 135 equivalent) f/8, 1/1250

That's better. Not bad for a hand held shot on a manual focus lens I guess. It's not very sharp though. Cheap mirror reflex lenses aren't exactly exotic super tele lenses. But they do the job in this case.
