The MOON

December 29, 2010 5 comments

One of my greatest moments is when I set my camera to the MOON and try to still my hands and press the shutter, looking to the sky and stars are a wonderful thing. This MOON is on its 7th day-age, Date of capture: 2010:01:23 15:26:45

I take this shot using Sigma 50-500mm lens + X2 teleconverter so I reached the 1000mm, and I did’t use a stand, it was difficult to get clear shot.
