moon shots with 550D + Tamron F 1.4 C-AF MC4 TC + Sigma 70-300 4-5,6 DL
Nov 19, 2010

I remembered that I had a Tamron 1.4x TC from my EOS 50 days. I found it, put over my old Sigma 70-300 (of course at Av mode and at max. aperture) went out for moon hunt.

Moon was right above me so it was so uncomfortable to look thru viewfinder and making shots. I underexposed to maximum but was not enough (because of the maximum aperture) so I spotmetered the moon to overcome overexposed shots. then I realised I can take pics above 1/400th, 1/500th of a second so these pictures were handheld

So here are some lunar pics (fine L size JPEGs) with a 2010 model 550D +
1996 model Sigma 70-300 4-5,6 DL +
1997 model Tamron 1,4x C-AF MC4 TeleConverter
