800mm lens with a 2x teleconverter?

Hello all,

I just bought a Samyang 800mm f8 lens for the fun of it after attempting to take a few snaps of the moon with my father’s ancient Nikkor 500mm and my D7000. I got hooked and wanted even closer pics.

I haven’t even tried the Samyang but I’m already thinking of getting a Sigma or Nikon 2x Teleconverter.

Thoughts about this? Will it work? I imagine I’ll have to go full manual but that’s not a problem

Any feedback welcome
