    Wow! I love these. I really like the blue tint on the first two, was that intentional?

    :pale: :shock:

    How come you get such great results, pin-sharp and all, with the Sigma 70-300mm, when my results ALWAYS stay this poor?
    (cf: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=42277)
    Mine's called Sigma DL Macro Super 70-300mm 1:4-5.6
    And the camera was on a tripod, too!

    Good shots!

    #3 is the best. Maybe needed about 1.5-2 stops less exposure but you can still make out the crater Tyco quite clearly. (The one bottom right with the radial ridges leading from it)

    LaFoto, the Moon is always difficult to shoot. As well as it being a light source like someone shining a light bulb at you camera, the clarity and sharpness of the image is greatly affected by atmospheric conditions and air currents.

    It's just a case of keep trying until you get a good image or take 100+ shots & stack them all together!:confused:

    I'm not trying to burst your bubble, or be like the only "negative feedbacker", but I did this a couple months ago with a cheap 70-300mm, and this is what I got...

    ...not much different than yours, and it was a basic point and shoot shot.
