    The sky was clear for once in New York so I was out on the law in Pj's 1am shooting the moon. These are my first moon shots that Im happy with.

    70-200 2.8 on a tripod. D300, f/5.6 @ 155 mm, 1/250, ISO 250, No Flash

    Not too shabby, but I'm curious... why weren't you shooting at 200mm?

    I took a bunch of shots and was thinking I could bet better sharpness when I was not at max 200mm on that lens. I don't know the sweet spot on that lens but I know 200 is not it.

    You shouldn't worry about the lens @ 200mm, it's quite good. Sharpen the image up in post processing and you'll be fine. As for the picture, I'm a sucker for moon shots so I like it.
