    Found a used Tokina 400 5.6. This was handheld w/2X teleconverter at ISO800, 1/200 sec.

    Not bad, huh?

    Wow, nice. I'm always being befuddled by the moon in my attempts to get pictures of it. Pretty cool. Could maybe use a slight sharpening pass though?

    Now I am surprised, I didnt know anyone with a Tokina, so I always presumed the image quality would be crap, but this is ok, better then expected!

    Not bad at all. It sure is much better than my few attempts at the moon.

    Thanks. I've had a chance to test it a bit more. Correction though.....the converter is a 1.5X, not a 2X. Still, the sharpness has surprised me:

    Here is a squirrel without the converter:
