    Nothing special, just having fun shooting the moon today. I'll try again with a full moon. TAken with my 100-400mm lens with a 1.4x Kenko teleconverter cropped about 70-80%.

    Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
    Tv(Shutter Speed) 1/200
    Av(Aperture Value) 8.0
    Metering Mode Partial Metering
    ISO Speed 400(I probably could've lowered this)
    Lens 140.0 - 560.0mm

    I love these kind of shots.
    But I just can't get a nice shot of the moon like this..
    Mine always come out with alot of purple fringing on the outline of the moon.
    Did you use any kind of filter while shooting this shot?
    Good work. Keep it up.

    No filter on this shot, just my lens and teleconverter hand held at the above settings.

    What lens are you using and what settings have you tried?

    Purple fringing is usually caused by CA (Chromatic Aberration). Here's a great read on it...http://www.pictureline.com/newsletter/2004/july/purplefringe.html

    You can try a lens hood or adjust your settings accordingly, it could even just be your lens. I had a consumer lens, the Sigma 70-300mm APO Macro DG last year and tried the same shot with similar settings and didn't experience the purple fringing. It could be a number of things.

    Try the setting posted above and see what you get, is it worse? Better?

    Nice photos. I wish I had a lense that could zoom in close enough to take a picture of the moon.

    Excellent Work. I too captured a couple of the Full Moon shots from the Tenth. I hope to get some up either tonight or the next.
