handheld @ 420mm ISO 800 on D2X. Of course, was at 4.0, not at 2.8 aperture.

Why handheld? I didn't have the RRS foot yet. Today I do have.

Thanks, I thought I'd got my 1.7 TC out, but had the 1.4 on instead. no matter for this one. Let's see what I can do tonight with the 1.7 if the moon cooperates. :)

But handheld, I was amazed frankly, I was just playing really I did try to steady myself with my arm leaned on a rail/roof thing of this shed I have, but still a lot of motion.

400 ISO 4.8 aperture, 500mm. I am not quite sure why the 1.7 does not produce 510mm on the 300. Not sure where the other 10mm went! (1.7 X 300)= 510. 1.7 TC of course.

Very impressive Doug. After reading your post, I poked my head out of the window, saw the moon and grabbed my gear for a try.

thanks. For some reason, I picked up enough brightness on the moon that the shutter really wasn't open as long as one might think it would be! (shooting aperture priority)

Obviously, I was just playing, I really wasn't going for anything critical here, but the results were fairly amazing none the less.
