    Doug's post motivated me to give it a shot with my 500P +1.4 TC. It was nice clear night and was a fun experiment.

    original.

    Thanks guys. I can't take any of the credit. It was just the equipment - G1325 tripod, sidekick/BH-55, cable release and the cropping power of the D200.
     
  8. Wow, looks like it is in my computer room. Very nice.

    Nice shot Chris. That 500 p is a sharp lens. It makes me want it back :smile:

    Thanks Herb. The 500P has been a lot of fun to shoot with. The moon is a great subject since it doesn't require refocusing very much :wink:.
