ZS3/TZ7: moon with TCs

I made an adapter for my TZ7/ZS3 based on the design kindly provided about a month ago by Tom K: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1033&message=32058552

The other day I used the adapter with attached TCs to take some shots of the waning full moon with the ZS3 set at 5MP and AWB. Although at max zoom the ZS3 has a FL of only 280mm compared to my FZ28's 486mm, the ZS3 seems to perform well with TCs, and even stacked TCs. Here's a shot taken with the FZ3 using an Olympus C180 stacked in front of an Olympus C210, giving an effective FL of about 770mm:

Cheers,
Ian
