Moon Shot

This is not the eclipsed moon but a photo I took on the previous evening. I went out to prepare for the eclipse with some different lenses and equipment. Above is what the nearly full moon looked like through a 400mm telephoto doubled with an extender to 800mm. While I was pleased with the amount of detail that is visible I decided that I would shoot the eclipse the next night using a normal lens (50mm) to show it as we saw it. It's nice to see the moon as it is in the above photo but it's almost a bit scary since it really looks like a great big rock hanging in the sky.
