D7000 Moon Shot Mk II

A quickie here to show an image of the moon shot by the D7000 at 300mm using the 70-300VR with the Tamron 1.4x teleconverter. So that’s 300 * 1.5 * 1.4 for an effective focal length of 630mm.

The moon in its large form is now almost 800px on a side. We’ve come a long way baby …

The teleconverter softens the image somewhat, especially when used on a consumer zoom. Yet this image is not half bad. I think I need a 600mm prime with TC20eiii teleconverter … 10 grand will get me a pretty moon …

Of course, a $600 telescope will kick the stuffing out of this moon shot I think anyway … perhaps one day that will percolate to the top of my desired toy list :-)
