Moon in Q Motion

Don't know why, but I started to record the moon using the Q video (with a Pentax-A* 645 300mm lens) and it is interesting to see one the movement of the moon across the FOV, but also the details the Q retains in the video. The noise level is still very acceptable.

Flickr limits videos to 90sec's, the full version does have the moon slipping off the side, but maybe thats good thing, after 5 minutes its almost as exciting as watching paint dry
Still a quick google search didn't show the Q being used for this.

Moon Several months later Take 2

Very cool to track the progress of the terminator. Please try again on a still night.

Thanks, and I think I had the 1.4 TC on that time also.
