Last night moon at dusk...
Couldn't find the bird I was looking for, so I devoted my frustration on this moon...
took only one shot, and it was good!

Great shot. (Maybe the bird flew behind it!)

If that was handheld, my hats off to you.
Excellent shot no matter how you got it.

Thank you all...
No it wasn't handheld... if I'd done that with a 250-600mm + K-3 + Grips, weighting around 20lb, I'd be a super hero !
It was on my sturdy Gitzo tripod + Benro S8 Video Head

However, I took only one shot of the moon, and that was it... normally, I use lower shutter speed, and lower ISO for the moon, but, like I said, it was a kind of frustration shot

Happy new year all!
