500mm Moon Pictures


Here is a shot of the moon I took tonight using the new 500mm reflector lens. The new lens is interesting. It puts a haze over everything that I photo except objects that emit their own light or have a substantial glow about them. This shot is a little blurry, but that is a result of not using the most stable tripod for the photo. My other lenses are lighter and also have their own stabilizers, this one is more basic and heavier, so it needs something more stable at the shutter speeds I am using it at. I love the lens, it is good at being what it is, a simple, straight forward manual focus lens (I like being all primal with the most modern technology sometimes). The above image is uncropped, the moon appears as it does in the image sensor, filling about 1/10 of the sensor.
