Moon

By ironman
Taken using my brother-in-laws Canon 650-1300 lens.Quite difficult to keep this really still so will try again with a full moon.

Were you not using a tripod? Great shot if so!

This is the first shot of the moon i've seen (or at least paid attention to) from outside of NZ, quite a surprise (though obvious it should be) just how different it looks from the northern perspective.

The lens itself was on a tripod.The lens is 600mm long when used at 1300mm.There seems to be some sort of locking collar at the camera end,maybe this doesn't quite lock enough.Since my brother-in-law only paid 29.00 for the lens from a local car boot sale I don't suppose this is an issue.There also seems to be no aperture reading on my camera with this lens.I set exposure manually using shutter speed and the under or over exposure indicator.The aperture always reads 00.I just need to experiment a bit more as these shots were taken on the spur of the moment at 2.00AM.Regards,Simon.

It is a beast of a lens, and needs time to set up right, think this view of the moon is probably better than full. (Reminds me of a Pink Floyd album from the 70's, can't think what it was called, before my time!)
By the way, Happy Birthday, will defer my vote, if we get doughnuts tomorrow it'll go up, if not......

Dark Side Of The Moon is the album.Will bring money for doughnuts but you may have to go and get them because I will be too busy working.The lens does require careful set up and I also agree I also favour a partial moon.Regards,Simon.

Great shot considering it was hand held!
Anything less than three quarters full will always show more detail than a full moon, i suggest using a tripod but i reckon you've already thought of that.
Well done.
Ricky.
