Moon Phase
Posted By: Buddha Jones, 03-12-2008, 09:34 PM

This is the result of a test shot using K10D with the Tamron 70-300mm @ 300mm paired up with the Tamron 1.4x TC and the Vivitar Auto 2x TC for a focal length of 840mm. I shot it in manual at f/4 for 1.5sec but accidentally shot it at ISO 800. This is a full frame resized to 25%. I think it did pretty well considering all the glass it had to go through. I will try it again another night at a better ISO and in a darker setting, some of my neighbors had some outside lights on.

I learned from a couple sites and people to try
around 5.6 and 125th. It looks cool though a little sharper would be better.

Not bad indeed as you mentioned that is a boat load of glass. I like to take moon shots and as the weather gets warmer here hope to get out more often.
