Moon shot (Tamron mirror plus 1.4x TC)
3

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.
