Funny thing happened last night, I was bringing the lens setup back in last night off the back porch from taking the moon shots and I had the tripod set up pretty high as with the tilt up to capture the moon and the length of the lens I still had to bend down to see thru the camera. I was trying to carry it in thru the door when the lens swung around on the tripod clamp and hit me in the head, almost knocking me out...plus it has this rather long pointy handle for focusing sticking out, if that had hit my head it might have actually done some damage...Live and learn from now on I will be more cautious manuvering around with this monster lens.
