Waxing Gibbous (68%)


As the sky was clear tonight, I thought I’d try a moon shot with the 500mm and teleconverter to see how much quality was lost.

I first tried it with the 2x converter (TC-20eiii) to give a whopping 1000mm but didn’t like the final outcome as I thought it looked too soft. This photo was taken with the 1.7x converter (TC-17eii) and it was a little better.
