    1st attempt at shooting the moon, image of the moon has been sharpened and background blured a little, the curves were slightly adjusted,well maybe a little more than slightly. btw: This shot was taken just prior to sunset. Thanks for looking

    This is only just your first attempt at taking a picture of the moon, and the result is THIS!??!?!?!?

    Oh, how I envy you!
    I've tried it ever so often and my results don't come near your first by longest lengths.
    Wow.
    I can't tell you how much I would for only ONCE (I am happy with little) capture the moon at such clarity that you can see the craters...

    Cesium 911 – I used my Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L w/1.4 extender – love this lens!

    Lafoto/DOrr– I wish I could say it was about the photographer but here it’s all about good glass and location. Here in California our moon sometimes comes out a couple of hours before sunset making it a perfect shot for photographers. I just learned this today from a buddy from Europe who said that he had never see the moon come out so early in the day until he came to California. Not to mention the adjustments made in Photoshop although they were small adjustments they are very effective.

    Thanks you guys for your comments as they are always appreciated.
