Shooting the Moon... (img)
Jul 27, 2012

Well, I'm thoroughly impressed. I went out back last night, and did some shots of the moon using my E-M5, Sigma 50-500mm, Olympus EC14 teleconverter, and the Digital Teleconverter function on my E-M5 engaged.

I actually had to back off from full zoom (2800mm 35mm equivalent) to keep the moon within the frame. So this shot is at a 35mm equivalent of 2380mm. Camera mounted on a tripod with gimbal head, manual focus, and cable release. The wind was pretty gusty, so I left IS 1 on.

This is an uncropped Jpeg image

God Bless,
