|Earthshine on the dark side of tonight's crescent moon. (ISO 800, 2 sec, F4.0, D7000)|
Stick the 500mm on my wobbly tripod head, decide to go for it and add the 1.4x converter. Stop down one stop to sharpen the converter (hurry up, moon's behind the trees now), guestimate the ISO and shutter speed, and set the self-timer for two seconds. Hold my breath, squeeze two frames of the moon, then two left and two right. (I'm hoping that a stitch will hide some of the wobbles when I downsize.) Moon's below the horizon when I finish shooting. Phew. Nice ending to a blue sky Earth Day.
