V1 + FT1 + Sigma X2 Converter + Sigma 50 - 500 = 2700mm
Dec 30, 2012

Here is a shot taken on a tripod with a Nikon V1 with the FT1 adapter a 2X Tele Converter and a   Sigma 50-500 (non stabilisation model) of the moon.  Manually Focused as the Sigma lens is not recognised so had to put some sellotape over the pins on the X2 converter for the V1 to allow the shot to be taken in Manual mode.

Levels etc were done in lightroom.

No cropping has been done this jpg has been taken straight from the RAW file

If anyone knows where you can get the firmware updates for the Sigma lenses to work on the FT1 I will be eternally grateful.
