    This is good!
    Taken with the 300mm lens?
    A bit of a crop from a larger original?
    Nicely sharp, all the same! Wow.
    And I love the fact that the sky is still blue. Actually I guess it was even lighter blue "in life" than shows here on this photo?

    Thx LaFoto for the comments

    Yes this was taken with the 300 F4 with a 1.4 Tele attached so effective 420mm.

    Yes this is cropped.

    Was taken early morning, just before sunrise - the moon was still out bright. I was on my way to take some morning bird shots, so was handheld as I didnt have a tripod with me.

    Very nice! I got a shot of the moon similar to this with my 55-200 at 200mm. It AMAZED me just how much detail a telephoto lens can resolve on the moon.

    Actually, with the crop factor of the D200, you had an effective focal length of 630mm. Still, a very nice image and well done. Would be curious to know what your settings were- or how you eliminated the noise.

    Correct, focal length was 420mm (35mm equivalent: 630mm)

    Ran noise reduction in photoshop, shot as ISO 400, aperture priority of 5.6

    Thanks for looking
