Extreme Telephoto

Challenge #4 in the Our World and Beyond series. Hosted by JamesD28.
Challenge has finished
Sometimes our subject is just too small and/or too far away to photograph. Sometimes we might choose to move closer to it, but most of the time we will, instead, use the telephoto lenses. Use this challenge to present your best photo which was taken at an extreme telephoto setting, preferably of something which would not be possible to photograph by other means. Macro shots are welcome provided they comply with the rules.

Taken with Meade DSX 90 attached to my Canon T1i. I did mask jupiter and brought down the exposure about 4 stops. But this is all from one single image and the moons are as shot.
