Never had a 400mm lens until now, and since it has been awhile since I did a moon shot I figured it would be a good time to check the new lens out. Shot this with 400mm f/5.6 + 1.4 TC.

I'll take 2! WOW. I saw the moon was bright last night, but it was 3 a.m. and the trees were in the way. Congrats.

Nice shot! And that was 896mm of effective focal length. (plus potential cropping, if any) :D

I believe it was around midnight, exif data should be intact.

No, not 896. 400 x 1.4= 560, and yes it has been cropped.

Thanks to all for the comments.

at what settings do you set your camera to take the shot? I figure the Moon and earth is moving a high rate of speed, but do you drag or do a quick time elasp shot??

Well, I included the crop factor in the calculation (1.6x), so in full frame it would be equivalent to 896mm. I just like to think focal lengths in the FF equivalent, so I may confuse people when I start posting. ;)
