    The moon, from my gear

    We have to take into consideration that the lens used is "only" 300mm, which is way too short for photographing the moon. As such the image shown here must have been heavily cropped, and it is stretching the limits of both the lens and the camera. Since the moon is so far away the...

    rechargables
