So what the heck -- I decided to try to get a pic of it. I've tried it before but have never really been happy with the results.

    Thanks. I used a 600 f/4 with a 1.4tc.

    I have not had luck with moon photos. I've gotten close, but nothing this sharp.

    Aside from f/4, what was your ISO and shutter-speed?

    The lens was f/4 max aperture, but this image was taken at f/5.6, 1/1600 at ISO 200.

    Pretty serious glass. :D Have never used one that large.
    I get my good moon shots using a refractor telescope, sometimes a reflector, often using the projection method as it seems to work best for me.

    Nice Shot. I just posted one of the full moon at sunrise taken with a 70-300
