The Moon on 27th Feb 2015
Lens: HD PENTAX-DA 1:4-5.8 55-300mm ED WR Camera: Pentax K5 Photo Location: Sointula, BC, Canada ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F9

I thought I would try out my HD DA 55-300mm WR lens @ 300mm for a moon shot last week. This is actually a stack of 50 images, converted from DNG raw files and cropped in Lightroom, then stacked and processed with Registax. Final tweaking in PS CS4 with Topaz Clarity and Detail. I thought it came out okay. One day I would love to have a nice Prime lens to do this with, but until then I am happy with the results.
