Moon shot (Tamron mirror plus 1.4x TC)
Apr 12, 2014

Clear night tonight in London so the tripod came out, along with my Tamron 500mm mirror lens (can't bear to sell it) and a Tamron 1.4X Pz AF Teleconverter (as good as everyone says).  It's not a particularly inspiring image, but I think the combination did pretty well:

Cheers,

Jon

You will get more detail out of the image if you do it when the Moon is at half moon instead of full moon.
