Re: Is this not a montage?

That is really impressive. It is worth renting the 800mm and the 2x extender just to try something similar.

Thanks for your answer,

Pardon my ignorance. But how can the moon look so big in the background? Has the rising moon been superimposed on the walker?

That is how big the moon "looks" with a 1600mm lens. The hard part is getting someone lined up with it far enough away to keep them both in the frame (the Earth is rotating fast). I wonder what camera that was taken with... surely not the crop mode on an APS-C Canon DSLR (which I have done before at 840mm, and it more than fills the frame), but can't say for sure if that is a FF video.
