Figured I'd join the moon lovefest. Taken tonight. Processed using Canon Digital Photo Professional & Gimp.
My question is the limiting factor. I'm thinking if I used a telescope vs a telephoto, that the clarity would be resolved. This photo was taken at 6:30pm, and at that point the moon was already about 40 degrees in the sky. Either way, there's a sharpness issue that I need to discern whether it's due to a process related problem or an equipment limitation. Or something else completely. I use auto focus for the moon. This lens comes with 3 different stabilizations (I'm using the correct "1" setting for it). I'm not sure if that's imparting noise or not as the angle made it difficult to forego stabilization.
