This is my attempt at photographing the moon. It was around 7.00am this morning so the sky was lightening up with a deep blue colour. I took this with a Canon 7D, a Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS lens, a Sigma 2x converter and a tripod. The focal length was 600mm @ f8, ISO 200 and 1/125th sec. There was a small amount of post-processing to sharpen up the details and to increase the mid-tone contrast. The original photo was cropped by about three quarters to cut out most of the sky.

Camera:Canon EOS 7D
Lens:Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 EX IF HSM APO DG with 2x Sigma Convertor
Recording media:RAW (digital)

Excellent Alan.
Taken in the morning gives it a different perspective.
Was that with a 600mm lens, or larger and stopped at 600mm?
I'm out of my depth with only a 300mm lens.

Hi Jack,

it was taken with a Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 and a Sigma 2x converter to produce a focal length of 600mm. If you have a 2x converter then your 300mm lens will have the same magnification as my set-up.

Regards, Alan.

I put my 2x convertor on last night Alan & the D300 had a senior moment ( well, moments actually) Locked up ~ chucked a fault code onto the top plate, and behaved like an adolescent OAP for about 3 minutes.
I've spoken to Nikon Support about it, & they're going to get back to me.
Each of the individual items work fine, when isolated

You could try gently cleaning the contacts to see if it's just a bad contact causing the problem.
