Still testing my SX50 big zoom, not with a bird photo but a portrait of tonite's moon.

The digital TC zoom on the SX40 always impressed me, but with the SX50 I now have to be carefull not to cut off the edges (in 16:9) of our celestial neighbor. Note that there is some post to remove the black edging the TC algorythms place at demarcations of high contrast. I took the image handheld at first and was pretty happy with the stabilizer holding the sharpness of the image. But as a check, I pulled out my small lightweight tripod for another go, and liked this one even better. So rather then going outside in the cold, here's tonite's moon for viewing in the comfort of your home.
