Reaching for the moon (DA300)

This image was taken with a DA300, a Tamron 1.4TC with the pz contacts, and a monopod. (I think i'll keep this lens :-))

Shutter 1/350, F4.5, iso 100.

Very nice pic of the moon ! I did not try yet to shoot the moon with my DA 300/4. I used to take my Tamron AD2 300/2.8 stacked with 2 teleconverters (works well with 1.4x-L and 2X-S together). I will try later this week with my DA 300/4... maybe with Kenko 1.5X + Pentax 1.7X ?

Using LR2, toning, some clarity, 46 pts sharpening. Lightroom has really gotten better in Ver2, i know many prefer Silky Pix but LR was easiest for me to learn.

I'd like to see that. Is the Pentax 1.7 as outstanding as everyone says?
