For the price of a 70-200, a 70-200 image (handheld :))

At the risk of sounding like a wannabe, I too enjoy the challenge of photgraphing the moon. I love the idea of the 1500mm scope and hope to get something similar myself. However in the mean time I snap away with my 70-200, sometimes on the tripod and, if I'm away from home, hand held. Here's my recent example taken in Istanbul, leaning hard against my hotel room window frame. High shutter speed and ISO to get the exposure right. It's not brilliant but does have some detail. Heavily cropped of course...
