    Heh, not as good as Chase's but I've been unsuccessfully trying to do this for quite awhile. Something always manages to foob things up. But this one is ok.

    And I got a bunch of variations of this one (which I won't subject you to) in differing amounts of cloud cover.

    Great shots. I'd like to see a 100% crop of the first one. What lens did you use, and what were your specs?

    EXIF says I shot this with a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX @ 200mm & f/8 on the *istD. Shutter speed was 1/250, manual mode, spot metered. Shot off a tripod with mirror lockup.

    Post processed from RAW to jpeg. USM'd after resizing, 300/.3/2.

    **edit** I redid the crop so it isn't so sharp. Still looks funky at the lower right edge, but it's the angle of the light on the mountains doing it I think. I need way more lens for this kinda stuff. :)

    Thanks for the nfo. Upon seeing the 100% crop, it does look a bit sharp around the edges, but not bad. You can fix that. Awesome shot, thanks for uploading the crop :)

    Thanks Jeff, the blur wasn't hard- the wind musta been howling up there because they were clipping right along. :)

    Great moon shots Jim. I particularly like the second one with the cloud streaks. What's really nice about it is that the moon is in a cloud opening and not blocked from view.
