VERY nice!! I've been working on a good moon shot for a week with my 18-200, but can't compete with yours.

Hand-held? All the more incredible. Well done.

Which 300mm did you use?

How about this one taken tonight with a 300 f4 and TC14EII on a tripod with the infared remote and mirror lockup?

It is the only cheap (sort of) way to get to 600mm with a DX. You'll be very happy with it.

Outstanding photo. Since I am new at this, what is the advantage of infared and mirrow locking in taking this photo? Also I see you used a teleconverter. Can I use a nikon teleconverter on another lens such as the tamron 18-270 which is the one I have. I assume a teleconverter will work with a zoom lens?

I took the same moon photo, hand held with the above lens and it does not come close the the quality of your photo.

Mirror lock up and using the infared remote shutter release takes almost all of the vibration out of the exposure. One word - sharp. That is as good as that lens combination can give you.

Is using a 300 f4 with TC14EII the equivalent of a 420mm lens?

Yes it is, and 630mm equivalent on a DX (1.5X) sensor.

So when I use a Nikon 300 f4 with a TC14II on a Nikon 7000, do I have the equivalent of a 420mm or 630mm lens. I am a little confused with the DX sensor reference.

Same angle of view that you would have on a 630 mm lens on a 35 film or FX sensor. The 300 mm alone would be that on a film or FX sensor and 450mm equivalent on the D7000 DX sensor.

Well done, JG. I think you have demonstrated the superiority of
the prime over the zoom. I have yet to get as good a moon shot with
either my 70-200VR + TC-20E III or my Sigma 150-500OS + Kenko 1.4TC also on tripod with MirrorUp and wireless remote release.

Check out my moon photos. These were taken with the D7000 attached to a Meade ETX-125AT.

1900mm, f/15

I used the IR remote for shutter release but need to try the mirror lockup next time.

You can select the remote release (around the dial with A,S,M,U1, U2 and P on it). In the menu, you can program to lock up mirror on first click and take picture with the second and mirror comes down automaticly. Great feature of the D7000.

That is great, especially considering handheld with the 300 f/4 @ 1/250th. I could not have held that lens still enough to take as good a shot at 1/250.
