Tried handholding a moon shot with my new 150-450. 450mm, 1/60th @ f/8. Was surprised it turned as well as it did.

That lens has a little weight to it, but I like to try hand held as well (usually). Great result in this one!

Wow, impressive (even alongside tripod shots)!

It really is an amazing photo. Lovely composition. I'm impressed that you were able to get such a sharp photo hand holding a big telephoto is that light. Well done. I do like it, in fact I think it would be a wall hanger for me, if it was mine.

Thanks very much. Yes, it is a little heavy, but not as heavy as my Nikkor 200-400 f/4, which I'll be selling soon to purchase a second Pentax body and flash.

Thanks.

Of course I shot a sequence of about 8 shots and picked the sharpest one. That method seams to work best for me in these situations.

Thanks lessor, but it is heavily cropped. I find shooting a sequence in these situations helps a lot.
