    not too good, the only view i had was out of a window where i could not set up a tripod, so these are handheld at 1/6th and 1/10th f2.8 @ 300mm

    But hey :shock: they are so much better than MINE... and I had a (hate-able!) tripod and allowed for 5 seconds at f9 ... and yet, yours are better!!!

    handheld? wow, really good!

    At least you did not run in to the trouble of motion blur of the moon moving itself, as I had with my first ultra-long exposures ;)

    Moon shots normally (at full moon) do not require a tripod or monopod... I generally shoot handheld at 1/125, f11, ISO400 on the full moons to catch the details without blowing it out... good shots..!!

    Good shots there Duncan but why were you unable to get outside instead of shooting through a window? :lol:

    It seems most lenses focus past infinity at this kinda distance, even expensive ones! :lol: did you use auto focus or manual?

    For being taken while you held the camera, those are pretty darn good. What's your secret? :lol:
