M*300 + Quantaray 2X TC Results

Because I was bored I decided to see how my grandfather's el cheapo Quantaray 2X TC would work on my newly acquired M* 300mm. I decided to do some moon shots, and I must say, I was pleasantly suprised. I might get better restults just cropping, but the results with this rig were not bad IMHO.

f/8, 1/6 sec, ISO 80

I have never tried a half moon. I love the shadows of the craters. Thanks for giving me the idea. I assume you used a tripod at that speed.

Thanks The shadows add depth.

Yes, a tripod was definitely necessary, I also used the 2 second timer.
